My edges are too hard
So I make myself smaller
I curl my legs into my chest and listen to my body tell me to stop being so full
stop breathing so loud
stop feeling so much
let all of the nerves separate and burn away
until everything is under a pile of ash.

You touch me silently 
with nothing on your mind
at all
I make myself smaller
until all of my thoughts
disappear.
