Feeling


lava boils within
my thin veins
anger awakening my pulse
a lover's kiss akin
to pride slain
jilted lovers act on impulse

there was little life left
pale heartbeat
cold ashen skin before the pain
enraging me you're deft
hurt concrete
thankful for feeling life again

natural chemical
emotion
inner medicine for the soul
wonderful terrible
commotion
occasional loss of control

  2. I read this as hurt/anger actually being a good thing sometimes - it can stir one from helpless lethargy. At least, that's how I feel sometimes. It's painful, but galvanizing. If I hadn't been dreadfully hurt, I probably wouldn't have started seriously writing. Reminds me of the Christina Aguilera song "Fighter".
