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.
