Firestorm

November 28, 2007
By Steve Berry, Alpharreta, GA

Emotion erupts from the center of my being
Corrupting, destroying, relentlessly angry
Blinding my very eyes, heart and soul from seeing
The damage I could cause so easily

A rage of malice and tormenting thoughts
Throws me, spiraling, into fits of remorselessness
The rage towards losing what I sought
Thrusts me into feelings of painlessness

My anger knows no master, save me
And I control it when I choose
Unless my feelings and anger agree
With my sore desire not to lose

But it is not what I have lost
Simply what I have not yet gained
That throws my heart into icy frost
And my mind redoubles what I have pained

Pulse pounding in my wrist
Veins pulsing with hate
Firing a punch that never missed
Leading a conscience to a long lost fate

Feelings corrupted, I walk in the dark
Daylight hours fading into nowhere
No one to hear a lost remark
The white abyss of anger is where

My self is lost and my feelings control
What is my body and heart
While I am lost, no more than a soul
Trapped inside with anger’s start
