The Storm That is Brewing

Christine Ray – storm warning unheeded

Brave & Reckless

The silent scream I stifle

cuts my throat to ribbons

makes my eyes

my ears


raises phantom welts on my skin

spelling out




Hiding behind a mask

of cool civility

I pass for human

you think me




You fail to see

the suppressed rage that boils inside of me

Your nose not sensitive enough to smell

the iron and fire on my breath

You do not sense the building electricity

thunder in my blood

lightening gathering in my fingertips
