Anger and fury

I thought I would share this poem with you all:

Anger swells like a tide of fury through my veins,
my head swims in the sea of rage.
Fighting to stay afloat and in control,
as the pain rips through me.

The tears pour like a river into that sea,
their salty taste lingers on my lips,
as I gasp for air into my aching lungs,
and try to calm my beating heart.

Still I cannot rid myself of this resentment,
of myself, of the situation, of you.
The word hate comes to mind,
yet I loved you once.

You have tortured and scarred me,
not just my body but my mind.
You eroded my soul,
now all that is left is tarnished by your cruelty.

What you have done is with me every day.
I cannot hide from the suffering you have caused.
It determines my thoughts and actions,
yet you are no longer here to persecute me.

You tore me into shreds,
extinguished my real self and now;
I cry, let out the hurt and pain.
And for the moment, stagger through the broken shards of my life.

More can be found at: . . .

I wrote my poems over a number of years and they have kept me sane! (Well sane-ish) I have used them to get my feelings out and to finally start healing from the hell I was in.
I hope someone can find strength and inspiration from them.
