May I Cry? - Poem by Rik Bertrand

I feel like tearing up my teddy bear,
Kicking someone's ass on just a dare.
I feel Pain in my heart that is so intense
I ride the Stallion of anger, and it doesn't make sense.

May I cry, can I shed a tear, do you mind?
Can I just lay down here and pretend to be fine?
Can I release the tension that is due to explode?
Can I set my path on a better road?

Oh, the heat of the moment devours me,
If you could only see what my eyes see.
I want to snap, crackle and pop this bubble,
I want to cause all kinds of relenting trouble.

May I cry, can I shed a tear, do you mind?
Can I just lay down here and pretend to be fine?
Can I release the tension that is due to explode?
Can I set my path on a better road?

I want to wipe the floor with the lies and deceit,
and throw bleach on the dark desires at my feet.
I want to crush the hate and the wicked hands,
Of those who worship the blackened lands.

May I cry, can I shed a tear, do you even mind?
Can I just lay down here and pretend to be fine?
Can I release the tension that is due to explode?
Can I set my path on a better road?

I am tough and hard and made of steel
Yet I must manage my heart that's so real.
I must calm my mind, and comfort my soul
And not let myself fall into the devils hole.

So,
I am going to relax, and shed that tear,
There is no real reason for me to fear.
I going to lay down here and pretend I am fine
And let all think that my revenge is blind.

REB (MARCH 2012) because sometimes I get pissed off, but I don't let it control my actions.
