a man
fumbles with his heart
wondering how to admit
he never learnt
to play the ruddy thing

WOW. I really love this. It has touched me so much. I was having a conversation with a male friend of mine the other day who is in his late 40s and is single. He touched on the theme of not knowing how to operate his heart as a reason for his 'singleness.'

This really is so poignant and an excellent insight. Thank you.

Yes, beautiful. I love "ruddy thing" to describe the heart.
