All the emotions of my heart
broken, fleeting, hopeful, sad
loving, happy, waiting, jilted,
deceitful, sentimental, hidden
sent to you in poems
is not really coming from the heart
but from the limbic system in the brain
where emotions are translated into
little electrical impulses
on the soul's hard drive.
So why do I feel much more in love
saying that my heart yearns for you
rather than offering electrical stimuli
pulsing somewhere in the outer cortex?

'Little electrical impulses'
Rachel Ann Butler
I love the reference to the souls' hard-drive. A brilliant way of looking at emotions and showing us that true emotions - like true love - are from the heart and not from our brains which are no more than highly evolved organic computers. It could be argued that the capacity to feel 'heart' love is the essence of our humanity. Brilliantly concieved piece, Jim. Bravo!
Jim I enjoyed this greatly, and to be honest I think that assumption might be right LOL. I think we think there for we feel gotcha. I loved the topic and the concept. A great write. a 10
