My heart was pounding so hard I felt it through the coverlets.
I feared it would break out of my chest, so I bundled myself up in layers, hiding everything but my eyes so I couldn’t hear it ticking anymore and pressed my hands hard, hard, harder against the spot where I was alive— perhaps in an effort to stop the ache of living.
The lights were out. A fan blew through the room. And I lay there, and quivered, and loved far too deeply, far too well.
