Winding up

Written by: Jenni Munn

Pressure swelling in my head
Straining behind my eyes
Tainting the world with scarlet red
Reason starts to die

A flashing, soundless, fiery storm
Screaming in quiet alarm
Descending in a poisonous swarm
Causing irreparable harm

Violence, now my only desire
Smoldering self-erosion
Burning like a white-hot fire
Terminating in ruinous explosion
