The Heart/Mind Dialogue
The heart, like a mage, can cast a shrewd spell
To trap the unwary, the dreamers, and those who can’t tell
The truth from the comfort of a self-told lie,
Which binds those who breathe it, and kills hope with a sigh.
The mind then, like an anchor, must firmly hold fast
And plumb the depths of life’s oceans so vast
To secure a treasure whose sparkle ne’er fades,
And keep her beside him ‘til the end of his days.
