    The mind, she stays cool, Calm, composed Like a still, still sea Incessantly churning within its depths The mind calculates. The heart, he rages Laughs, cries of joy Wearing himself on his sleeve The heart yearns feeling Like oxygen. And they fight. Mind poisons Heart Deceives him, u...

    Callused hands caress a wrinkled cheek, I lean forward on my bed; bones seem to creak. A relic lies on my bedside, left by someone who cares. A long forgotten photo. A child's face stares Back up at me, and in shock I freeze As I remember that I forgot that ever- blowing breeze. The dust ...
