In the head

The truth is, love is in the head.
Emotion residing in our body's blood pump is but a folksy construct.
Sure we might feel sadness in our chest, like an empty ache
And yes, you could say that feelings travel through us,
As though the heart is pumping out joy or pain into every extremity.
Some might even argue that heartbreak feels life threating, like cardiac arrest
But that’s all just romantic fancy.
Love is in the head.
