by Naomi Sheldon

The problem is when I feel too much in here, the edges of me can’t contain whatever this is inside, this ball of feeling. It’s violent and its ugly and its embarrassing and it grows until it’s pressing up against the insides of my skin and I feel like I’m going to tear open, and I guess I, yeah, I feel like I’m going to… disappear.
