It’s part of me –

the Snap.


It can be triggered by anything.

One minute

I’m fine

and the next,


I’m fucking not.


I’m a grenade,

just pull my pin

and I’ll explode.


Sometimes it’s meaningless things;

like –

someone chewing loudly.

You know the kind,


and right up in your ear.


Other times

it’s the way in which

I’m spoken to.

Treated like an outcast

or worse


a child

who cannot make decisions

for herself.


That one,

really sets me off.
