Swollen Heart

A heart swells, oozing with love, having fulfilled, re-fulfilled and over-fulfilled obligation. But the mind now weakens from the weight of this swollen heart and the pressure must be released before it explodes. As they engage in battle; mind versus heart, one resists the power of love, the other embraces balance and they become an intertwined braid of strength; a natural phenomenon, the one of harmony. by Ana Espinola Collins

Love this poem! In life we have to take many important decisions (especially where love is concerned) and we have to keep a balance between mind and heart; if not heartache could follow. // paul
