When your body says yes,

but your brain says no,

listen to your heart.

If your mouth says yes,

but your heart says no

listen to your heart.

If your heart says yes,

your body will follow.

Follow your heart.

It cannot rationalize.

It doesn’t reason,

and is heedless

of excuses.

Your heart will give you strength

when your body is weak.

Your heart does not need to fear.

Follow your heart.

If your heart says no,

trust your feelings.

The heart understands

what the mind

can never comprehend.

Trust your heart

to be your compass.

Your heart knows the way

even when your brain gets lost.

Be good to your heart.

Your Heart Loves You

even when it seems

like no one else does.

Your heart will teach you

how to love yourself

in order to be able

to love another

completely and unselfishly

and without reservation.

When you Love Yourself

the others will follow.

Trust your heart.

Listen to your heart.

Follow your heart.

Every time it breaks

it gets a little bigger,

and gets a little stronger,

and you become more fearless.

Open up your heart.

Your heart will set you free.

If your heart says Yes….

Follow your heart

    You have no idea how thankful I am to see you back on WP. And the timing of your post… The Spirit surely guided you. Thank you.


  2. We do need to listen to our hearts, wonderful write..xx


  3. Wow! I’m sure you’ve been through your share of turmoil…All this time you were gone I wondered what you were up to… I’m speechless. truth and beauty… don’t make us wait another two months for another one of these poems… you have been missed my dear 😉 XO chazz


    • Dearest Chazz,
      The Concern, Love and Support that I have received brings me tears. I have no doubt I have a lot of catching up on your writings. I also have no doubt they are Amazing as You Are! A XO Mmmm I like that. What does it take to get a XOXO?


      • What a delightfully provocative question…(you do realize that you really opened Pandora’s Box to ask ME that, right?)
        I’ll suppress the inner pervert in me long enough to say, well…considering our success with the two collaborations we did in the past (which I thoroughly enjoyed), I’d say another collaboration…I’ll leave the rest to your delightful imagination, Ms. Anastasia…depends on how many X’s & O’s you have in mind….
        (Please forgive me if I crossed any inappropriate boundaries, but whatever I may have implied is mitigated by your choice of inferences…)
        Seriously, I was so impressed by this last post, whatever it takes to encourage you to write more, it would be an honor and a privilege to be a part of that process.


      • Dearest Chazz,
        No need to apologize about crossing any “boundaries”. There are No Boundaries! The “box” has been opened. You should know me by now, the more perverted the better… Now about that “collaboration”…
        Your Friend,
        Anastasia 😘


      • I have wanted to do a more or less weekly bi-line for a year now…I wanted to call it “The Modern Deviates” or something to that effect. It really could use a point-counterpoint kind of format to work in the female perspective, to which I still admit to not having a clue…wha’cha think?


      • I think its a Fantastic idea. As long as your response isn’t ” Anastasia, you ignorant slut”… Giggle giggle. Geez now I’m really showing my age. 😊


      • Anastasia, my dear…I would never refer to you as ignorant.


      • So as far as the collaboration, what would you like to use as a subject and who should make the first comment?


      • Hmmm I’m exploring my deviant, and most perverted thoughts…. I’ll email U.


      • Don’t make me wait too long. 😉 The more impulsive, the better. xoxo


      • Check your email My Friend 😈

    This is so perfect. Just wish the heart was not so volatile and vulnerable.


  5. writingthebody says:

    Well…here you are, my dear Anastasia….I am so glad you are ok. That is an intense, I mean very intense poem. It is a fine piece of writing too….I knew things were not so ok, not sure how, but am glad you are on the road back, and that we are part of that….xxx
