35. Heart’s punishment, mind’s punishment

   Both
My mind and my heart
  Punish me.
Yet I love my heart
And hate my mind.

   Why?
My heart’s punishment
  Is reformatory.
My mind’s punishment
  Is vengeful.

My heart punishes me
   Because
Of my own immediate necessity.
My mind punishes me
   Because
Of its own constant necessity.
