At the bottom of the cup

the tea leaves swirl

As I lift up to drink

 

Some days

Are harder

 

I keep searching for you

In places we never meet

Absentmindedly

 

The heart is foolish

Yearning for things

It cannot have

 

The mind even more so

Rationalizing

The heart’s every desire

 

I should compromise

Be rational

Practical

Less stubborn and pigheaded

 

Somewhere though

I know, instinctively,

It will never be enough

 

If you have loved with all your heart

You’ll know what I am talking about
