so many wrong people wanting parts of you you don't want to give them
|I unfurl my attention in bits|
And a curl at the corner of my mouth.
Because my attention is an ocean
And we will drown you in it,
Crash you against the unseen
Suck the air out until there is no more and still suck,
You think you can handle it,
You try my eyes,
Seek my smile.
Try to convince me I'm willing to offer it.
But my system, it's for your safety
A glance over here,
A smile for a stranger,
A touch on the arm for an old friend.
Inside of me.
Temper the edge.
This is not for you.
