A Human Heart

A sonnet

Magnificent organ to say the least

a vitalizing machine perfectly placed

for ones lifetime it continues to beat

don’t let its occupation go to waste.

They say the heart is a window to the soul

the fundamental essence of ones being

one part does move while the other controls

every thought, every deed, every feeling.

From the heart comes ones deepest desires

lustful longings and a playful passion

it’s beat quickens when new love transpires

should it seize the heart, proceed with caution

for if it breaks, soul soon may follow suit

and we cannot survive without these two.
