Sometimes this world feels too small for our hearts-
too small for all the stories and poems we hold,
too small for all the pain
and too small for us all to fully expand into.
In all our beauty and thrashing.

So tell me, what can we do but push the boundaries of this world and of each other?
What can we do but tear the doors from these cages?

And what the fuck am I to do with all this love bleeding inside my heart,
in a world that doesn't seek to understand what love could be?
