Frustration (Poem) by Natalie Nichole Carrizalez


Screaming. I'm yelling! Why would you push me to the edge? 

Fire. I'm burning! Why would anyone let me get that hot?

Restless. I'm going. Why would you let me burn so hard?

You're supposed to be on my side.

You're supposed to help.

Voice gone. Eyes swollen. Tears flooding me.

Why would you do this to me?

Frustration. Something I'm trying to resolve.. yet it replays in different ways 

making me count the ways I'd like to set a blaze..
