When I looked inside the mirror today, I felt like smashing open my rib cage and pulling out my heart. Reaching inside and wondering why it kept beating for someone like me.  I want to trace my fingers against the contours of its pericardium, feel the rhythm of life bumping against my palm.

Your heart is the size of your fist, is what they say… But the weight within that organ is enough to drown the universe itself.
