Last night, while I was sleeping far from you,

my heart was growing

bigger.

 

I woke up this morning to find that

my chest could barely contain its volume.

It is growing still.

I can feel its edges becoming blurry as it

widens

beyond the confines

into blood and bone,

Until

every organ carries its essence,

Until

each cell has become thick and swollen with its fullness,

Until

my body can no longer contain its vastness.

 

it seeps out my pores and

leaks out the corners of my eyes

until

I feel my “I” both disintegrating and expanding.

 

Last night, while I was sleeping

far from you,

my heart was growing

bigger.
