The Rage

I stood in the center

While their laughing, taunting, and mocking

Words swirled around me,

Flooding my head and

Ripping through my heart.

They were so shallow,

Their uncaring words pouring forth

Like a burst dam

On someone who was different,

Not like them.

I got so upset that things just exploded

Inside my head and all around me.

Rage burned in my heart, and

Fires burned around me.

Betrayal laughed in my face.

Most of all I thought I was

Just a game to you, just a score.

I couldn't believe I listened

To all your sweet words,

Never realizing it was a lie.

When I saw your face,

I just wanted to die in despair and agony.

But to my surprise it was a

Cruel joke on you as well.

You truly did love me, but

Now we can never be together.

I am only glad that I was able

To look on your face one last time

And say I love you.
