The Fire Burning

Too much.
Way too much.

She calls it, tumult.
Too much tumult, she says.
But she is old school.
Old school.

She says I am giddy.

There is a fire burning within me.
A fire burning.

Leaving me
Angry. Bitter. Resentful.

I am awake at night,
My eyes wide open.
Pink acrid fumes
Swirl around my face.
Which I inhale in
Small tight streams
Through my pursed lips
And nostrils.

It becomes clear.
Everything is clear.

Not tumult.
Not tumult.

Step within me.
Venture inside of me.
See me.
Listen. Listen.

Breathe. Breathe.


All calm now.
