denouement image


I learned a lesson almost

three days ago

An overdue tutorial

about bodies

and souls

and human hearts

And pragmatism

which knows nothing of the

psychology of love

As if there is such a thing


Never give of yourself

before given to

Never presume that an

offer given you

is the offer you thought it would be

before the fine print is read

And never be surprised at the

dénouement of the human heart


Because the human heart is a

simple thing

when you understand it

It beats

It bleeds

It breaks


And sometimes it gives

when it should not want to

  1. The heart wants what it wants even when our minds might know it shouldn’t. sighs…

  2. Excellent introspection. Wondrous medical photo. I love dissecting the viscera and the thoracic cavity. Your self-dissection is admirable and beautiful.

Go on, SAY IT... you know you want to.
