i am so alive

i don’t understand how some people

do not feel as deeply as i.

every infliction, fluctuation, nervous touch upon my heart,

seeps into my being and is circulated throughout my veins.

this is not what pathetic looks like.

this is not what weak looks like.

this is what a burning heart looks like

and how lungs filled with crisp, piercing air inhale 

and then exhale.

this is life.

deep,

true,

horribly beautiful,

frightening and

raw life.

i am so alive.

  1. We are all this alive. It’s just that many choose to numb down at life’s constant challenges. Like you (and likely much older than you), I have not, cannot. I am enjoying what I’ve read so far. Thank you.
