free mind, caged body

digital messages
which evaporate
in their own heat
.
lips promising kisses
wetting the passage
to touch the soul
.
alcohol induced
small talk
falters
unable to
carry
the burden
.
flesh
held away
from flesh
.
caged
.
while
minds make love
with gay abandon
.

your title reminds me of much of the world. we want to do something, but hold back. what is it in us that prevents us?

this is very different different from 'the mind is willing but the the body is weak'. this is the mind is willing but the the body is unwilling'

"unbearable lightness" of a free mind's burden :) ... absolutely wonderful!

Quite sarcastic yet true... i love how you can mock at reality with such ease :)
Cheers!
