[ Love & Spiritual ] The Heart of Most Matters What

    
Valves open at muscle's flexing;        
what you yearn for unawares        
is a threshhold giving way to corridors        
freshly lined with coagulating experience -        
       
invitation to become immersed        
in an upstream of who you could be        
       
while the who you are is tugged free        
from dry docking into wild abandon        
without benefit of compass or clue        
as to where you will end up consoling        
aching sole        
       
The Heart wants        
     what the Heart wants        
       
never itself subject to any breaking -        
not even that of the metaphorical -        
its beat rarely if ever faltering on feet        
steadily indifferent to your        
            
      succumbing to discouragement        
lagging behind, ready to wave        
the white flag in defeat and retreat        
on all fours as if a loyal dog beaten        
       
     or        
       
     dusting self off before firmly taking        
wheel in hand with stalwart intent of        
lucidly sailing toward horizon of Dream;        
       
and even then in Things' Grand Scheme        
you very well may travel full circle        
ending up precisely where you began        
in familiar chambers of wanting        
       
as Heart impatiently takes your hand        
again      
       
while you are wiser this go around  
 
 
   
but not really
