poem: colored heart

all of the colors inside of me

are screaming, pulsing, bursting at the seams

the pieces of my heart,

treasured and cherished beyond all else

these pieces, minuscule in size but mountainous to me,

popping out in blinding yellows and soothing greens

the bits of my soul the most prominent,

and yet the most private

are dying to escape,

to live in a world less sheltered and harsh

are dying to be free,

to live in a world that will accept their varying shades and hues

and i am afraid that i cannot give them that,

but i must try.
