A bright red scream


I have bright red angry screams.
Not within the voice of me.
But in the cuts on my arms.
I cut and cut.
Now my scream is out and free.
My screams are nasty red cuts.
Angrier by the day.

Each cut is my
My bright red scream.
Every cut a new scream.
Screaming louder and louder.

The bright red scream.
Sets me free
If not for long
Just for a while.

    This poem has much potential. It is about a silent scream which shouts in tragic red color. It is almost Zen-like in its powerfulness. (Report) Reply

    Freedom does not come from pain, or screams. Freedom is found in trusting Jesus Christ, Amy, and that's as simple as it gets. Stop screaming - lean on Him. (Report) Reply
