I tried hard not to be a stranger but I'm just passing.
Speak softly so I'll come closer until I fall over.
As my bones splinter and shatter into my skin
Running out in traffic wondering are you really listening?
If this sliver of confidence can't anchor my eyelids.
I hoped for this then I choked on my spit
when I'm honest I'm nervous
so I sleep in the threshold
so you can walk all over me every morning.
