Rage

By Damien Knight

Forget the anger the pain the tears
The hated stare of my eyes in the mirror
Empty cold basket of despair
My burden alone to bare

I am tired of the echoing in my head
It used to be so much I’d wish myself dead
Now I just wish it were silent
These thoughts left unsaid

I can’t cry due to blinding rage
I am trapped in my body, this infernal cage
I peck at the bars and crow
But outsiders laugh as if it were stage

My life is not your amusement
I am not just a character for torment
I too am a man
With feelings I lament
