Tension in my jaw
clenching thoughts
between my teeth.
Pressure building around
words expanding
under strain.
If I wasn’t holding back
I might spit diamonds
hard enough to cut us both.

  1. *HUG*… That is all.

  2. I can relate to this. So much. But lately I have only so many shits to give, and have started spitting a few diamonds. :/

  3. I get this. And once started, I find it very hard to stop.
