I want to know

I want to know what it’s like
to have extreme heart control
and keep love’s basic attributes
imprisoned behind bars.

Is there a fight for breath,
a decided lack of exercise,
and nourishment not suited for
eternal growth?

And when the nightmares come
is there a cry for comfort
and can the eyes dismiss
the downward fall of tears?

Is there a reach and stretch
beyond the physical
seeking there a reason
for imprisonment?

Or does love simply die 
and stripped of memory interned 
deep within the psyche
to not ever rise again?

Before I buy, beg, borrow, steal,
please tell me what it’s like
and most important definitely
does it work for you?
