In your heart is a thought

In your heart is a thought.

It's safe there. It may be frightening or it may be thrilling or it may be dangerous or it may be all of the above. But you can keep it there.

Or can you?

It smolders in there. You can hold it for a little bit without doing yourself harm but eventually, eventually, the smoke is going to rise.

You can keep swallowing it down, hoping that thought puts itself out eventually. Maybe it will. Of course, it might start something else while it's in there. That's a risk you'll have to take.

Or… you could speak it… into reality.

What once was frightening is now terrifying. What once was thrilling is now orgasmic. What once was dangerous is now destructive.

And you can't take it back once you've spoken it. It's there. The smoldering thought is a raging fire now! What are you going to do? What are you going to do?

You should have never let it out, you should have kept it inside, you should have kept the world safe from its intensity. It's too much, it's far too much.

You should have just let it consume you instead.
