the girl detonates but does not make a sound


if i was a pretty one i

could blow up and break

things like silence like

shyness like sanity

like the soft you thought

i was and

i would rather shake your

world with my

crush than with my call




i might even bubble up once

you have taken in my

smooth, some sort of

creep that takes you

slowly, you have to

sit down take a

minute to keep going




in my head i am

screaming i keep

falling every time you

can’t know my name so

you just look

the right way and i

explode and not speaking i

am gone.
