My Inner scream is out of control,
Churning and burning my inner soul,
Pain and confusion reigning within,
Years of hurt surfacing with all it brings.
Years of chipping away has taken its toll,
As tears roll unchecked as they slowly fall,
The emotion is destroying years of hiding
behind a mask of calm looking smiling.
I need to scream, rage and vent,
But my inner scream seems to prevent
It surfacing and holds it burning in my chest,
Scared to let it go and control it at best.
So tears drop slowly down my cheeks,
Sobs stifled as control weakly submits,
Fear of letting go of trapped emotion,
Once started, won’t stop and the loneliness of letting go.
