Heavy heart

There are so many things squirming under the surface dying to be free.

Crawling across my skin and in between my teeth. I sew my jaw shut with promises of a better tomorrow.

Unfetter my heartache latched behind these gaurded smiles. Unfurl my longings to leave these chipping paint day dreams and customary salutations of decline.

I used to be an old rusted out rocket ship lost in space, weightless and unwieldy with nothing to guide me and nowhere to be.

Today I am plummeting to the unfathomable depths of the ocean, my heart heavy in my chest like a stone pulling me ever forward into the unknown. 

Treasure buried alive in my own flesh and bones.
