While I Rest
Anger anger
penetrates my mind
over and over
harder getting harder
and so roughly
the invasion of my body
brittle bones break from strain
 so forceful
tears slip silently away,
though squashed
they can't go far
so I drown
in this darkness
in my defeated room
with the door
now hanging off its hinges
why does anger always grunt?
and it keeps slamming into me
getting harder and faster
face down
on my bedroom floor
that holds me coldly
but still holds me
face down
I cry
anger collapsed from exhaustion
he stood tall a long time tonight
now I limp the plateau
forever squashed
my dreams, my hopes
forever squashed
my life
