Words Of Anger - Poem by Arti Subramanian

Lost in a stormy ocean of outrage
Struggling to keep sight of hypocrite shores
Through tear-filled eyes as I bawl

Bloodshot eyes find me in the stifling blue
The oppressive night reeling onto me
And then throwing me into a howling mistral

Black sands rip sodden cloth on my breast
Shreds of outraged dignity that cling on
Among deafening cacophony of jeering catcalls

Broken heart beating painfully on
Screaming body, naked as born
Imprinted on blinded black eyeballs…

Sheathed in my ravaged body alive
My soul unsplintered, enraged, untouched
Rising from the dead in bloodied rainfall

Transparent rage in silencing glide
Anger bespoken in silent words
Rage vented at silent walls

Listen not to the words I yell
Look for the unfallen words
My silent weapon, my clarion call…
