Heart (An old poem from 2014)

Alter of the soul
Keeper of all flames
Corpus to the elusive
Conquistador of kismet
Compass to the nonsensical
Contraceptive to falling
Occasional confessional
Percussion instrument
Stentorian orator
Instinctive thespian
Spartacus to love

Beneath this assortment
Of split personalities
Lies the chambers of man
Haunted by god
Consumed by fear
Muted by disease and age
And summoned by death

The epitome of a transient vault
An ephemeral cauldron
That will prostrate one fated day
To the decree of fate

To leave the mortal heart
With her collective epitaph

Perennial dreamer of heaven.
