Stop looking at me like that, it tears me open a little and makes me want to cry pure joy. 

We have so many words and yet they somehow manage to tangle us up; tripping our tongues and muting the meaning. 

This one time I tried to be emotionless, dumb and bland.

It didn’t go so well. 

I jump from cloud to cloud, always terrified midair that my next step will become heavy and drag me back down to earth like an anchor diving into the murky depths. 

If you bombard me with accusations and constrain me with “no”s then this flimsy cage won’t hold me for long.
