Mind and heart- the shell

There is a bottle of emotions spilling its contents into the mind’s pocket

A conflict of desire, reality, fear of the Pandora’s Box, a box that holds the secrets of unruly soul

The mind and heart are they one? Do they walk hand in hand, each mirroring the other’s reflection?

Each a shadow of the other? One lights the dark, one darkens the light,


One thinks, the other feels, one feeding the other words in a language known yet unknown to the being,

A restless wish to shred the pigmented layers of dictating laws of the world outside,

A light shines through the smoke, but the eye stands on its tip toe to catch sight of it,

The light, does it lead to darkness, a world unseen, drifting into land of faithful demons,


Demons their grip, one always feels the comforting warmth,

At times the chills and shrieks, they keep you awake, alive,

Through the struggle you listen to your breath realizing you need your demons,

You need them to watch out for you, you need darkness to think and feel,


In the darkness the heart meets the mind, crowding the room in your soul,

Love, loss, sky high desires, reckless zeal to find oneself,

All their quotations, wise words are scripted in the dark, the words are light that shine even as life dies,

Resurrecting to find the lone soul shell of purpose, existence, of cause and reason of life and death
