Bad Day

I NEED...
To scream as loud as I can
As long as I can
Until the anger
Pain
frustration
Manifests from the tip of my toes
To the top of my voice
And leaves me

I need a friend
So I can vomit words
Until every metaphor
Synonym
simile
For every feeling I've ever felt
Vibrates out of me
Filtered through strained vocal chords

I need to cry
Sob uncontrollably
A fit of tears
Curled in a womb
Of blanket-pillow closet wall dust bunnies
Until I am numb
Exhausted
Tear-soaked
Until every uncomfortable rage
Unfathomable anguish
Has materialized and fallen from my face

I need to punch
In a tornado of fists
Until my hands
Bloody-broken-swollen
Red
And my muscles sag from overextension
And every defeated
Hopeless shattered thought
Has been pounded into something
Concrete and inanimate
Void of feeling

So I can hurt no more
Because today has had its way with me
And tomorrow will come
And I WILL NOT take it with me.

Wow! This is amazing. Better to let out negative emotions than to keep them bottled up inside. We all "need" to remember this. Great writing.
