Forgive my heart for my mind did sin
For to temptation it did give in
but not my heart, true to you it did stay
so why for my mind's mistake should it pay?
Not through my actions but through my thoughts I did wrong.
If you must, blame my weak mind for not being strong
but not my heart, true to you it did stay
and it could not bear to be turned away.
For any action my mind did make
In no way did my heart partake.
In my mind's one fault, one error, mistake.
If you must, hate my mind for what it did do
but not my heart, when all it's done is love you

The mind often wanders, succumbing to mischief and deceit. Though, it need not taint one's passion or love. This poem is a sweet piece.

wow, i really like that one, you are good.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
