The slightest comment knocks me off my path,
I tumble back to a world of darkness.
The dark engulfs me from inside out,
I shiver but my heart is burning with wrath.

The anger is condensed at my very core,
It makes its way up, suffocating me.
My body tingles with a feeling I do not understand,
I can’t control myself anymore.

I let myself disintegrate; there is nothing left of me.
My positive traits, my personality, my love—all vanish.
I fall asleep from exhaustion,
When I wake up, I am empty,

New heart,
New soul.
New day,
New start.


The author's comments:
I wrote this during a time when I was feeling, well, mad, as you can tell, and this time, instead of burying my face in my pillow and crying, I decided to vent my frustration out through writing. This is the first poem I have written in years (seriously), so it's very...rough. But I am proud of it, so I thought I would publish it! :)
