Treasure Island

I feel it rising


Slowly it rises
It makes my breathing ragged
My vision narrows
Even my thoughts slow

My muscles tense
My blood begins boil
Only one thing matters
I must fight
I must win

I slowly rise from the ground
Blood drips from my wounds and splashes on to the floor
But I don't feel it
There is no pain
Only hatred

I begin to laugh as they look upon me with shock
I hands clench into fists
And my fists rise
My legs move forward
Walking turns to running

They move too slow
Far too slow
First one doesn't even make a sound
He simply falls after my fist connects with his skull

Voices begin talking
But not from the outside
I feel it rising
And the world begins to get shut out

The next man tries to fight
But he is weak
He is scared
A shot to the stomach
Then to his throat
And finally the back of his skull

The last one is shaking
She sees what I really am
And as the lights flicker
She can see the demons inside me

I charge her
She fires her gun
First shot misses
Second one hits my shoulder
But I don't stop
The third scorches through my side
But I don't stop
There is no fourth shot

The voices scream go low
So I go low
They say use your knee
So I bring my knee into her gut
She doubles over and vomits

As she looks up she begins to cry
She asks for forgiveness
The voices scream no
I say no

As the light flickers
Her body looks so frail
As her life drains from her
The voices laugh
And I laugh

I feel it rising
I feel it filling me
Taking over
The madness has taken hold

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
