Poem: Heart.

My heart is

Suspended in the space

Between

My rational brain

And troublesome loins.

_____________________

My heart beats faster

When it encounters you,

Even when the currency that

Your love offers is only worth

A few coins.

_____________________

My brain sends signals

To my heart,

Telling me to step away,

And to run far from you.

Before our gazes start to linger

And our lips conjoin.
