Consuming Flames

anger deep inside
forcing my emotions to hide
inconsideration plays a role
in the confusion of my soul
how does one live in two worlds
split between joy and pain
how does one continue to suffer
while the heart remains in chains
reciprocated actions would serve catalyst to altercation
My heart's angry and wants justice
but i know letting it out will destruct my heart
stomach sinks daily, emotional chains anchor my thoughts
stuck in ways, chains unmoved, unshaken, unbroken
Fire and water work together, balancing each other
Flam consumes moisture, moisture can extinguish flames
When one consumers the other, can they ever be balanced again?
