(b) 2 (Pain/Longing) Foolish Heart

Something died today...
Hope of the heart?
Staring at me stark
Smile in the eye?
Song of the lark
Foolish heart

Body turned into stone
Ghosts dancing in a hush
Promising love will be atoned
Dont give up in a rush
Foolish Heart

She will rise, she will shine
Yet again, you will soon find
For she disguises
In her fragile exterior...
A will of iron
But a foolish heart

My Response TO: Foolish Heart HOPE: it let’s the world survive; I would say hope never dies! Let hope stare at you stark, Or maybe just smile at you! You may call heart foolish, But please let the hope alive! You say a body turned into stone, Or seen ghosts dancing in hush. Love’s promising in harmony, I say! Love’s not poison, nor heart a felon; You rush, yet say this heart a foolish? My belief, she will again and again But, rise and shine – also forever! I know her disguises, just forever – Her fragile self is just a deceit! She has the will of iron, pity still – I wonder, why she says heart’s foolish.
let that iron flash R...let it reflect the light within...break the other iron...the iron chains...and enjoy the release...love...nalini
