The limit

It hit her head on,

full force, without restraint.

All at once she became bigger than herself

beyond the boundaries of her own body

exploding into space

becoming one with the vastness of the universe.

Edges and lines

can’t, won’t, impossible

no longer existed.

She faced the fullness of her life

felt the potential of her heart

hers and not hers at the same time.

And once it passed,

not over but through her,

she shrunk back down into her body,

her feet planted,

her toes sinking into the ground below her.

She was once again inside herself,

but looked out with new vision

and understood

that this limit is an illusion.
