A man grows a bigger heart

A man grows a bigger heart
Like a fire station with only a hose
Like a large empty room unfilled
That he does not know what to do with
He breathes into it and it expands even more
He cries quietly and it gives him more room
He feels it stretch inside him
He feels it like painful music

A man grows a bigger heart
To take in more love
Love grows and doesn’t stop
There’s no release from the pain
It seems there is so much room in his heart
It gets filled with ghosts, birds, and comets

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
