Burning Emotions

There’s hesitation within the mirror.
A sensational ache, flames,
Ever so slowly immerse
In the crevices of her face.
Discontent and disarray,
Form a sick tension,
Bound in the jaw.
A fist bashes through,
Confined with hate.

The screech she produces was not the pain,
But the ignition of loathing from her core.

Memories they ping only resentment,
Experiences of a broken household,
Experiences of a neglected heart.
Like a cactus starved of water,
She was able to contain herself.
But the wilting continued,
‘Til it probed her mind.

Now, she burns true,
Past every emotional state.
Through personal experience,
It’s best to let the blaze go,
Until the last ember dies.
