If I clench my teeth hard enough
will it keep in the cry?
If I bite my tongue hard enough
can it hold back all the words I want to say
but can't say lest people judge me?
If I fist my hands
and press my nails to my palm
will it take away my urge for the blade?
If I blink enough
and swallow enough times
will the ocean inside calm
instead of boil over?
If I get the blanket
would I stop shaking from the goosebumps attacking my body?
