Poem Every Day #26 – Burst

Peter Paul Rubens

Peter Paul Rubens







Burst (PED #26)

skin thin
and opaque.

Seeing through
the surface
peeling back
curtains hiding
my soul.

Wanting you
to understand
everything -
how I tick,
the thoughts forming,
my heart skipping
beats when I see your face.

Your presence
emotions swell
exponential love.

Becoming fat
and bloated;
you are too much.
Continuing to expand
until the one day I can
consume no more.
