noisy

someone once told me that I storm
rooms
hearts
middle of afternoons
that I am a parade of energy
china shop
bull
so I tried to creep slowly into your life
I actually tiptoed
bit my bottom lip
but there was a loud sound
like water rushing
sirens
someone yelling at 2am
it's hard to stop a train
and I'm not sorry

things break
wear earplugs
harness your heart
