Becoming her


I know her now,
Know annoyance
Turned to frustration
Made to anger
Harnessed to rage
Forged into wrath
Waiting to be whelped into glacial revenge
Terrible violence
I know hopelessness
Bleak and dank
A fortress besieged by hard times
Hemorrhaging kindness
Into the gaping maws of the dead eyed needy
I know hate born of betrayal
And the loneliness of doing the right thing alone
The feeling of insanity striving for an ideal that will crush you
I know emptiness
The bone deep tired of looking into suffering
I know her now
Lessons learned though
Unfortunate circumstances heft like weapons
By the weak cloaked in illusions of grandeur
I know falsehood and faith
I know her through her pain
I know her now
How do I stop her from being me?
