Let that be a lesson

Let that be a lesson

The mind brought
           to its knees
by the body
           will rise again
when the soul heals
only of the self
           but love steps out
of the comfort zone
           takes risks
will hazard a guess
           takes no no
for an answer
           just as the deer
flees across the hills
           leaps over springs
hides within thickets
           the hunter follows
in hot pursuit
           until the prize is taken

The mind can harbour
           only so many thoughts
only so many
           mixed emotions
but love has its separate
           ways and means
and will never
           accept defeat
