An unwinding of truths. A long fall to the bottom where we first stood not knowing what to say to each other.

I can see through your eyes that you do not recognize what I’ve become.
This I do not mind.

I want to change, to grow, to be larger than the small self I’ve tucked myself away in.
I am bored of the still waters.
I am bored of the silence.

I did it for you.
Covered myself up in the images you had of who I was through your eyes.
Who you wanted me to be.
Too long.
Too long have I been smiling softly, talking softly, living softly.

I want to drape myself in laughter and lipstick stains and black crushed velvet.
I want to be sleek, and lovely, and dangerous.




You know what they say,


a girl is a loaded gun.
