LVMBDAS

the ache curled inside my chest
          	and grew leaves amongst my ribs
          	and they told me to snip them out
          	without mercy, without any love
          	and yet i could not, even as it 
          	began to get so heavy that i did
          	not think that i could bear it. the 
          	ache is my love for you, my darling,
          	and i can not get rid of it at all, 
          	because you are the thing that has
          	curled up so surely inside of me, 
          	and i will let the overwhelmingness
          	of it all kill me. you, you, you.
