I Lie Still

within and between
light and shadows
i lie still
wishing for

Inflate Me

Inflate me with ego, desire, a new perspective. Lift me when the weight of my fears tie me too close to the ground, as I will for you.

I grasp for security in our ebb and flow. And when I rise too high, heartbeat escalating, I dread a pop.

Still, I expose and the elastic heart grows.
