I am Torn

 I am torn
Between words that draw me
To what’s beyond the horizons
And logic that tells me
Horizon is just a trick of light.

I am torn
Between emotions that surge,
 gush through my blood.
And logic that tells me
Its just hormonal action.

I am torn
Between love that binds me,
Keeping me alive and sound
And logic that tells me,
Food, water ‘n air do that.

I am torn
Between tears of grief,
Of heart-break and loneliness
And logic that tells me
Its just aqueous NaCl.

I am torn
Between the fire of imagination,
Dancing before my eyes,
And logic that tells me
Fire can only heat and burn.

  1. The contrast brought out in the lines is amazing! The first stanza is still my favourite, though.

    However, try using any other word instead of 'sparkle' in the 2nd line of the 2nd stanza. The word takes away from the effect of the next line (or so I feel.) How about 'pulse' or 'throb'?

    All in all, awesome work as usual :)
