10.3.14 Quiet Girl

I’ve stopped wearing make-up
because I can’t keep it from running
I prefer to keep the lines on my face invisible
so I hide the lines on my arms

Invisibility would always be my favourite power
one I felt so close to
since I was close to no one
I’d cuddle my knees at night

holding myself like a baby
The only time I know I was safe
because I don’t remember it
I don’t remember a happy time
