What draws one heart closer to another
And draws other hearts away?
What laws of physics or universal unknown
makes the rules of attraction so?
This moment that is now
Which is then, was something more than
When… when we saw past the familiar.
This moment that is coming…
We have been waiting for it, felt it since the moment we looked…
What makes anything more than something else?
Can emotions be quantified or explained?
Is Poetry mathematics to the emotionally inclined?
Is there really any point to these lines?
There are rules. They are there for a reason.
Yet constantly my heart leads me in obstinate defiance of them.
Who enforces the rules? Do they feel these emotions?
Does the enforcer of altruism understand selfishness?
The need to be fulfilled. The need to be understood.
The need to be needed.
I have no truth but seek it still. All these years of rhyming words.
Of placing words in order feigning wisdom
Simply getting older.
I can recant the mistakes of my youth,
I can recite my heroic accomplishments.
Yet Wisdom alludes me; therefore,
I shall repeat it all…. Again.
