Dreaming Of Rage

I don't want to give into the maddening thoughts
I don't want to become what I am not

My clenched hands start to bleed
Because I despise falling asleep

Knuckles harden as I delve into unconsciousness
My bad blood boils away the sense of innocence

-
Inner wars are fought / Faces yearn to be tarnished
All of my battles are lost / I put every bad memory into my fists

I don't want to know my true self / Different sides of the same coin
My reflection is altered by the pain I felt / We both will reach the breaking point
-
The forgotten fury yells to be freed
The hidden hatred screams to be unleashed

The rioting rage roars to be challenged
The warmongering wrath growls to be unchained

As I dive into my pool of anger
I let go of my guilt and descend deeper

-
Shaking, trembling, quaking / To strike freely is my only wish
Breaking, tearing, rampaging / As my sanity slowly diminishes

I could never move on from the past / The pain will never be forgotten
Vengeance will always be in my grasp / I can never let these scars be forgiven

Please....tell me I'm not dreaming
Giving into my overpowering rage
Crumbling down; my sanity has been slain

This is powerful, it shows anger and conflict at it's fullest. Like this man in the poem is fighting angainst everybody, but he is losing the fight against his inner monster.

Man, we've all been there...
Excellent work; the emotion is just palpable and the rhymes are razor sharp.

I apologize for missing this comment last year. I just checked it for the first time since then- and saw a few comments go without a reply.

I was just working on the third "dream" poem and decided to get a flow in syn. I'm going to be releasing it soon. It's called "Dreaming Of Blood" Anyway- thank you for your feedback. I am happy you enjoyed this.
