the edges of myself

words, words, words

i get to take you everywhere

to the farthest reaches of my mind

into shadows no one else

would dare to wander

past my breaking point

and far beyond the limits i

keep insisting do not exist.

 

i hear your voice on good days

louder than my own– it encourages,

buoys and transfixes me– reminds me

of the magnitude of you– reminds me

of the magnitude of me– reminds me

of the magnitude

of we.
