Love Poem: Matter Over Mind

Matter Over Mind

There is no touch
Only the reaction of our nerve endings
There is no feel
Only the chemicals in our brain

There is no kiss
Only movements of the mouth
There is no love
Only the drive for reproduction and companionship

There is no logic
Only deliberation of our wants and needs
There is no rationale
Only a combination of words we like

There is no happiness
Only a feeble heart whose mood often changes
There is no depression
Only a feeble mind who lacks a human need

There is no humanity
Only animals walking on their hind legs
There is no intelligence
Only a false superiority over other animals

There is nothing
Only what we convince ourselves
