Quiet Evil

Color crimson
my eyes are
brain boiling at high temperatures
my heart scarred.

Feelings of hatred
feed my aggression
I may react in haste
to later cry in confession.

Unaware of what I am doing
everything gone black
adrenaline has my fuse lit,
as I hear bones crack.

from my momentary blackout I awaken
to see what I had done.
His consciousness I had taken
smiling, standing over him, 
the audience stunned.

Four years of being bullied
why?
because I was smaller,
my kindness taken for weakness
this knock out helped relieve my stress.

My friends surround me 
laughing, pointing,
carrying on.
My anger grew silent,
my lips turned from a frown to smile
I said nothing,
not a sound!!!

    My son had a different reaction, he was always skinny & he had all sorts of friends not the click type of kid, one day a "jock" grabbed him by the shirt front and hoisted him off the floor slamming him into the lockers. My son immediately broke out in laughter when the jock looked confused and wondered why he was laughing, Jamie said do you realize how stupid we both look right now? The jock started laughing too! (PS my son was 3rd degree blackbelt & coulda kicked his arse, jock didn't know)

    This is a wonderful poem and I hope a learning experience for anyone who wants to bully someone else or who is being bullied. I'm glad you knew what to do and did what needed to be done. You are still the best poet there is. Love Scarlett.
