my heart in my mouth
were less manifold
it took me a while to comprehend
that there is not one big single feeling
we should be looking for.
life is in lived in the plural
and you contain so many feelings
for so many people that sometimes
you get tired and
might want to give away your heart
for cheap, for free
but then you awake
i hope so, before too long,
and figure out
that hearts are meant to contain a lot
that's what they're beating for.
