Poem: Whirlwind

The tumultuous force of my emotions
circle me
enclosing me int their tight grip
i am squeezed in the center
my heart clenching in my chest
standing still
as they lash out at me
in pent up frustration
colliding with my true feelings
and the forces external

i am scarred
i am bruised
i am hollow and fake

i bite my tongue
forcing the words down my throat
in their grittiness
forcing the pain away
taking a backseat in my mind
Impassive, stony, gaunt, and blank
I remain
Bursting from within
I cry out
In silence
and die slowly
moving away
in anger
