All that precious space
My big nose and big lips
Are you mad?
My big thighs and big breasts
Are they taking up too much space?
My big words and colossal feelings
My big laughs and heavy depression
Does it make you uncomfortable?
My massive collection of knowledge
My infinite stream of tears
The tremendous fight inside of me
Can you feel yourself getting smaller?
Is it suffocating?
I’m suffocating too
Still struggling to take these enormous breaths
Holding up this massive body
My stupendous courage slung over my shoulder
Your monstrous need for me to stay small
to stay, insignificant.
Breath in through your nose, out through your mouth
Three times, and repeat.
I’m still suffocating
But now you are too.
