I'll shut down

Creating the fumes of anger
vicious claws gripping inside me.
Desperation to conquer,
battling to control me.
It wants out to influence 
the world that's around me. 
And I won't let it... will I let it?
A screaming soul caused by the slashing,
only to be muffled by my concealing.
I shut it out, I shut down. 
And if I don't feel at that moment,
nothing has the power to dominate me.
So I shut down, I shut down.
A sort of relief in its silence,
fought back with my claim of defiance.
Yet, its just a claim... only a claim.
And if you happen to ask me,
and if you happen to be concerning,
I'll shut down, I'll shut down.
