i am too much and not enough.

i want to believe there is safety in vulnerability,
shelter during the storm.

but i scatter pieces of myself across the sky like stars,
into infinity and out of reach

until a black hole devours every monstrous secret,
until loneliness fills each crevice of my anxious heart.

i hope

you are unafraid of the dark.
