When mind and body are restricted, heart can’t have joy.
IMPRISONED HEART: Boonstra Brain Function Form


When a veiled face hides a mind that’s too much strained,
Can such a heart hold in it a joy pure?
The tongue is locked, it’s not free to speak.
The eyes are wet and cry.
Who will soothe them?
Pleasure? No.
Pain.
