The Apple and the Dagger

An Apple in my heart
A Dagger in my mind
Each for one of two people
I just can't decide which.

  4. The quest to unravel is the allure of poetry, no? So Posekyere, you must make a personal discovery.

  5. Again, Bernie, do not confuse the Poet with the Persona. I am not the person in the poem :-)

    I say the apple in the heart...for the mind is prone to so many afflictions that alter it. Much more chance that the dagger will become blunt than that the apple lose its sweetness.

  11. Guess Who and Anon, you seem to be the same person. My simple mind does not understand your very deep comment. Have mercy.

  12. i must agree with Novisi, why choose...We all need apples in our hearts and daggers in our minds, sand between our toes and smiles in the wind.

    Oh how? I thought you were the poet! But anyway, I'm all about the heart. But I guess it's great to enjoy the exhiliration of the dagger, before it loses it swagger.

  15. Don't know what to say, Lucci. Somehow, I do not think I like that the meaning is now clear to you!

  16. Okay, so it's hearts before daggers for Guess Who. All right.

  17. Kajsa, I think I know where "sand between our toes and smiles in the wind" is coming from. I am really sorry about last weekend. :-(
