Letters To My Body: The Heart

“Maybe you’re the size of a fist
because you never learned
how to unclench your fingers.
Maybe you beat so hard
because you can feel
the flutter of my ribs
and you know
if you keep hitting
they’re bound to crack open
eventually.
Maybe it’s my own damn fault.

There were so many people
who tried so hard to love you
and I held
almost
every one of them
back
.”

— Ashe Vernon
