The Unknown

this rage is strong —
pit of the stomach,
hand shaking strong —
but not lethal,
not violent.

more,
a fear, a desire
withheld,

a need.

action or release,
fulfillment or
denial

hinges

on a look,
a tear,
a word.

frustration

  7. I love the sound in this:
    “withheld,
    a need.
    action or release,”

  8. rmp

    tight and strong piece. I find “a look, a tear, a word” can push either way…

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
