Firestorm

Anger casually rises
Brimming to the top
Soon boiling over
Flaming arrows just won’t stop

Hitting their mark
Distressing pleas fill the room
This is their life
Another typical afternoon

Shaken or free?

girl-2427972_960_720

How do you feel
After splattering your heart across a page
Do you feel freer
Or instead, enraged

Does it motivate you
To spill out some more
Or does it shake you
To your very core

How do you feel
After you’ve poured it all out
Like you want to scream
Or maybe even shout

Or do you feel lighter
Free as a bird
For now perhaps
You’ve finally been heard
