The Lighter

The rage sets in

It pools in my stomach

My hands itch to break something

My chest is tight

My eyes burn with tears

I don’t know why

The smoke of hate hazes my mind

It suffocates my heart

The searing in my lungs reminds me that I’m still here

Why won’t my anger disappear?

It bubbles and steams

But stays within.

More like a lit fuse than a simple flame

Burn it all to the ground, destroy it all;

That’s what that voice in my mind says

But I deserve the hate, the pain

The way it scalds my insides
