the human heart

the human heart can love many people at once.
experience has taught me that love doesn't gather dust.

the human heart doesn't know jealousy the same way as the mind,
and success and failure just depend on whether you've won or lost.

the human heart is where all the hope exists,
and when it's too broken despair's all that's left.

the human heart doesn't understand about giving up,
it'll keep trying when the mind has said 'no more'.

the human heart beats in a certain rhythm
that's too easily thrown off.

the human heart has a voice of its own.

a body is just blood and skin and bones
and a heart that beats to separate you from stone.

the human heart is weak and tired and small
and contained by a rib cage that's too tall.
