"This is your world. Shape it or someone else will."

It navigates through your veins
Effectively destroying you from the inside out
If you let it overcome you, there is no returning to the person you once were
Your blood boils to the point of scalding heat
Your vision, seen as if through a red tinted lens
Your breathing, unstable, yet so sure
The world is made to seem evil while a fire is burning hot within you
Encapsulating the person you once were
There may be no trace of the person you’ve left in your dust
But, you never forget who you’re after
This, is a dangerous state of mind
When, finally you reach who you are after and make them a victim
It is that much harder to refuse the intricate plot that has evolved within the caverns of your mind
Your fury reaches its highest peak
Your blood boils through your heated veins
Your breathing is no longer that of a human being
When all is said and done
Your blood cools, and the red haze will retreat
Your breathing will quicken
You will regret every moment
Every step
Every action
Every thought
Every word
And every choice that brought you to this place
You will blame yourself
Living with the guilt of what should not have been
Struggling with the knowledge of what could have
Continuously searching for something good to sprout from the sea of deception and lies into which you’ve been thrown
Finding none, other than the lessons learned
The experience gained
Knowing you will never revisit this place within you again

The author's comments:
This piece was inspired by saying something to someone that should not have been said, out of anger. It taught me to always think before I act, because once it's done, you can't go back.
