Scream

More by this author
I can feel the anger inside me
Turning the corner and transforming into something new
Something I never thought I'd feel
It's not a burning rage
Causing me to make rash decisions
I don't want to punch a pillow
Or make a new hole in the wall
That is not what I want to do.
I want to yell
I want to yell and scream and shout.
I want to pierce people's ears
Crush their spirit
Stomp my foot across their soul.
I want to anger them
Like they've angered me.
I wish I didn't care about you.
'Cause if I didn't, it wouldn’t hurt so much.
But you've hurt me,
Damaged me
Ripped me
Angered me.
And for that, I want to scream.
Just scream for all my emotions
And everyone's around me
But not yours
I'm done with yours.
Just let me yell and scream and shout
And if not, there's nobody to stop me
Because I will scream
Across your face
Echoing in your ears
On the walls,
In my own ears,
Throughout the rooms,
In your head, in my head, in everyone's head.
I need to feel it in my throat
Feel the uncontrollable need for words
Words that come tumbling out
Feel it in my heart that energy has been released
And released on you.
Let it trail through the town
Let everyone hear my wail
Because this time
I will be heard.
You will hear it come out of my mouth.
You will hear it through your ears.
You will hear my scream.

This is great, it's exactly how I'm feeling now about people. It's totally relateable, and I really like this.

I love this! This is amazing! I love how it doesn't rhyme and it's kinda random. I think that alot of poems force rhyming too much, but this one just kinda flows. Great job!
