A Poem by Hanna Pesha
My heart is such a
bursting to be free.
My heart is a catapult made from willow tree.
My heart is sinew, melting into bone.
My heart is a hurricane
that wants to be alone.
Love the sling, and I the shot
and you the villainy
My heart a giant bubble bursting to be free.
Bubblegum popping snapping fast
My heart on a shoestring
I want to make it last.
