(captured Heart) - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Am borne free
As the wind
To infinite desires
Of the human heart
Languishing in mortality.

I have an array of choices
As the multitudes of stars
Promising as the rainbow
Flashes of dreams
Apt for wishes.

I am in love
Should be free
A decision, a fate
for the heart to make
Towards its inclination.

The mind can reflect
What the heart seeks
Yet it can not suspend
The drive of a true love
Which captures the heart.

    A clever mixing of formal, nerdy words and the music of emotions.
    Great poem.
