Not A China Doll

I hate it
When you think
I'm fragile like a china doll
That you need to hold me tight
And shelter me from the world
So I try to be silent
So you won't worry about me
Or act like you are walking on eggshells
Then you say
You want to hear my opinions
You say you love to know what I'm thinking
So I speak
And then somehow
Between my lips and your ears
Misunderstanding occurs
And again, you try to put me on a pedestal
Your little china doll
Silent painted lips once more
