I’m screaming your name

In the middle of nowhere

At 2 am

In a raging thunderstorm

Our bodies are small

But our hearts are as big as the world

It’s big enough for everyone we love

Our days are dark

But our hearts are brighter than the sun

It’s enough for everyone.

  1. Love this one MIch. The line “At 2 m” stops you in your tracks. There are so many interpretations of this that take the poem in different directions.
