I wish I were Heartless

I wish I were Heartless

 

Pranayee Gupta Rachamalla

 

Pranayee Gupta Rachamalla (1997 - ) is a promising young poetess from Telengana, India. She is a forensic science student, Vedic Maths teacher and acupuncture - acupressure therapist. She started writing poems at the young age of 12. She loves nature and is in turn inspired by it. Her interests include painting, gardening, poetry, chess and Mathematics. “I wish I were Heartless” is a fascinating poem that explores the heart-brain / reason-passion dichotomy. The speaker desires to be heartless not because she is rational and unpoetic; she believes that it is infinitely better to be heartless than be heir to heart-aches and heart-breaks. The poet finds delight in the fact that heart cannot think.

 

I wish I were heartless,

or better to have been stone-hearted

because in such a case never will I be downhearted,

much better than anything else.

Even being careless or senseless is much better

because brain and heart  make us decide,

brain says what is correct and wrong for us

but heart always says things that bring joy to us.

Brain makes us follow the path that brings success

but heart shows us the way to happiness,

heart is such a poor thing,

works for us , exists solely for us

but takes all our thoughts,

without sending them to brain,

in order to create the presence of

joy and woe in the world !

It gets depressed for a slight failure

celebrates a lot for a little success

and freezes for even a small shock,

gets excited with anxiety with feelings and random thoughts

but I feel happy that it cannot think.

It only feels, it has no eyes to see or to blink!

And when it start to feel things of this sort

it ends up like this

Though it is the cause of all the problems,

It is the need for every solution!
