Once there was a person and they felt rather deeply, about everything.
When they were happy they vibrated with joy. They felt they could do anything, jump the highest, laugh the loudest, and people were drawn to how bright their light shined.
When they were angry they shook with rage and it burned them from the inside out. Their blood boiled to the surface making their face red and their eyes sting with hot tears. Their anger was vicious and if let out could incinerate everything it touched.
When they were sad their whole body became fragile glass. Every shuddering sob splintered their bones into shards that poked through their skin, glittering in the light for all the world to see.
They could feel so many things at a time, emotions flowing into and out of each other in rapid succession. Their thoughts jumping from one good thought to a bad thought to a sad thought, back and forth and in between faster than they could form words. When they did speak, people were often confused.
Well are you sad or aren't you? You never finish a thought. You start from the middle and work your way around and forget where to put the ending! What is the truth? You need to calm down. Stop being so dramatic. Why are you crying? Where does it hurt?
"My heart. My heart hurts because I am happy. My heart hurts because I am angry. My heart hurts because I am sad. My heart hurts because I don't know which came first or when it will end, or why I have a heart at all if it's not supposed to beat this hard."
