Marked
chevolleau

i am no bigger than the size of your thumb
 1
no louder than the beat of your drum
 2
i am no smaller than the tip of a pen
 3
i've had enough and i'm saying when
 4
there's enough petulance to go around the circle here
 5
there's enough innocence to sustain me one more year
 6
i have found my nook, my cranny, if you will
 7
and i have sought out larger ones because i've not had my fill
 8
there is too much violence and intrusive behavior
 9
and i never wanted to be anyone's savior
 10
i've always just sat and stared
 11
at the chalkboard and glared
 12
at those who passed me by
 13
not caring to ask why
 14
i have this silent smirk across my face
 15
i have this distended, caved-in waist
 16
i am capable of love and this pursuit
 17
this chase of what you call refute
 18
and i am liable for all the wrong i have done
 19
and all the times i had too much fun
 20
and here i am, plain as day
 21
and i'll continue how i've always been
 22
virginal, perfect, and full of sin.
 23
