Tempest in Question
Age Group: Adult
What is pain—
shallow in the stomach,
too thin to bear?
Like ice, ultra hot razors
slit my wrists with cold, and salt courses
through those same ragged wounds, slipping
off flushed cheeks to land
in wet plops in my lap.
An elusive sadness
I can’t find on a map, mind a static wave
of chaotic anger. Private frustration
emanates seismic waves from my coiled
—to explode wordlessly
at my life’s trend, emotional neglect;
Jaw clenched, spine ramrod straight,
cool relief eventually suffuses
sob-wracked limbs, and features slacken
once I’ve found less than a reason
to continue being mad.
Author's Notes: This poem is how I feel when I get mad. I was finally able to put an emotion into words. Fun.
