Reinstalling my System (6)
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
No more can I control the way
I love, the quality
Of my affection, nor the strength--
Heart listens not to me.
It's true to some extent that I
Can choose how to respond
When feelings grow, until they reach
To limits, and beyond
The lines that I consider right
Into the regions where
Society forbids me go
They say, "You can't go there."
Do people truly fall in love with
Just one single soul,
And never feel the pangs again?
If so, that's not my role.
I thought, in youth, that was the way
That ev'ry person was,
But I have learned, to my surprise,
That's just the corp'rate buzz,
And maybe many hearts can park
And depart nevermore
But others can love more than one.
If I had known before
That I am such a one at heart,
That I'm not built that way
I would have chosen otherwise
For though I wish to stay
And love my family for aye,
Still, others, too, need care
My heart keeps gushing, all my life,
And it's just wasted here.

But no, my heart just wouldn't die,
It loved, though I ignored
Its every message, every urge
