From monogamous Mind
does Heart steal a kiss.

Stern rebuke.

For Mind is loyal,
frustratingly so,
to that rational lover
called Brain.

Heart’s so confused;
a moment goes by–
the jettison to action
a rebound with Renals–
and Mind will be mine,
that Brain be damned.

But it’s not so easy
as all that.
Feelings are fragile
and coming from dear Heart:
this lack of care
makes Heart sick.

Mind takes notice, then, it does–
safely behind the hand
of indomitable Brain, who
plots Heart’s beat
on its life aptitude chart.

Mind cuddles closer
searching for reason
while our Heart breaks further.
