Listening, or disallowing, emotions
is, in effect, blocking your
windpipe and trying to breathe
through the pores of your skin.
Heaven knows it may be possible,
but you will waste away
attempting to find out.
A struggle, at first;
your heartbeat will hasten and
blood pressure heightens, but you
will not sustain yourself without
oxygen, or joy, jealousy
No emotions. No virtues.
Open your heart
