Inner Storm

by Alexandra Carmichael

Drowning sadness
Swirling rage
Longing that claws savage

Crazy nervous
Moving All
The
Time

Desperate wild-eyed everydays
Gasping for a pause in

the Crisis
That lives inside
Storming tender beauty
Tormenting ravaging scraping away

Until I collapse
In a mushy puddle
Unable to take one more breath
And yet I do
Somehow

Because this is life
for me

And I must live.
