  Sometimes I can't breathe.
Anger takes over my soul,
leaves me gasping
for clean air.
Free of bad -
still all is evil;
no good -
and my soul screams out in rage,
burning hot fires,
smoking everything,
and so my breath stays gone.

My eyes open
to dance shadows around my mirror,
seeing a blank reflection -
such nothingness -
then beauty, so deeply covered,
almost lost and gone.
Anger and lonliness slowly, so slowly and painfully, subsides.
So now,
I try to breathe,
to live my life.
