Heart’s Response to Soul’s Admonition

19 February 2019

Ви помилилися

Не визнати

Робити помилки у

Своїх думках.

Щоб поранити вашу дружину.

Якщо не можете відчувати її біль—

Ви не можете лікувати її біль…

Якщо ви любите її,

Йдіть до неї!

Vy pomylysya

Ne vyznaty

Robyty pomyky u svoyikh dumkakh.

Shchob poranyty vashu druzhynu.

Yakshcho vy ne mozhete vidchuvaty yiyi bil’—

Vy ne mozhete likuvaty yiyi bil’.

Yackshcho vy lyubyte yiyi—

Ydit’ do neyi!

…You were wrong

Not to admit

The mistake in your thoughts.

You were wrong to hurt your wife.

If you can’t feel her pain

you can’t heal her pain.

If you love her—

Go to her!

“Do you respect me?”

Her heart had been broken.

She did feel betrayed.

Years

Of

Wounding

Winding

All

Around

Her-

Self

Constricting.

Death’s face

She sees

Staring back-

Reflecting;

Smiling

that

‘all-knowing’

smile.

‘Patience, Death.

Not today, please.

Today

I

Have

Much

To

Accomplish.’

But she knows,

It’s just a matter of time…

“What do you mean, ‘do I respect you?’”

Her soul on the other hand;

Her

Indestructible

Soul

Who

Knowing full well

The impermanence

Of the body

Is meaningless

And

Death

Nothing to fear—

Can be at times

Stubborn,

Distant

And

Aloof.

Her heart continues:

“I won’t be

with you

Always…”

“No.”

Agrees

Her

Soul:

“However,

Sweetheart,

You

Will

Remain

Dear

To me

In my

Memory”

And hearing this

Her softening heart-

Resistance

Melting

Her wounds

Into

Golden chords

She

Cuts them

Loose.

“You,

My beloved

Soul-

I need

You

To care

For me.

Respect me.”

And hearing this

Her soul

(Eyes lowering)

Seeing

Now

For

Perhaps

The

First

Time—

“And I You.”

    1. Hi Mia! Thank you for being a part of this. I am grateful for your support. 🙏🏻

      We both like funk music. Great for dancing in the kitchen while cooking dinner! Thank you for turning us on to Roy Ayers. No apologies! I’m going to listen to more now!
