and suddenly I pause
my heart tightens
weights on my shoulders
do I feel too much
love too much
give too much
usually the words are right there
spilling out like water
but I can’t speak
my throat closing in
my whole body tensing
I want to understand
but you have to also understand me
feel me
see me
