I am a boat: riding on tides of flighty emotions, rolling and tumbling on waves of doubt and security under a sun that’s too bright on an ocean that’s too deep.
I am a leaf: leaping on a wind too heavy to carry me, stretching my sinews and scattering my broken heart across an empty land full of promise and dread.
I am a torch: burning those who come too close, lighting the way down a path lined with broken glass and rose petals.
I am a blink: clamping at a dusty touch, ferociously protecting the window within, ignoring you and hanging on to your every word.
I am a heart: beating until the very end.
