Speaking An Unspoken Truth (December 20, 2011)

Oh Goddess
Please help me
To understand
Where this anger
Comes from.


Which
This black rage
Fills me
With homicidal
And destructive
Thoughts.


As
I struggle
With PTSD.


Although
My last black rage
Happened two years ago
The threat remains
It will return.


This
Is not me
To want to
Hurt another person

But it is.
