Natalie Herranz, Grade 11, Bossley Park High School
Rage followed by twisting despise;
Unfathomable, inconceivable, undesired.
Visions of burning red, tinted with desperation,
Isolation becomes one with defeat.
Autonomy of mind- an unknown quantity,
Inconsistent, irrational, impossible.
How must one define you?
Understanding is mine, experience is key.
Suffering weaves it's way into all phenomenon,
A deadly grasp, suffocating one with psychosis.
An excavation, exposing and eliminating all things;
Watch them burn away.
It is pain,
You unbearable creature-
Twisting yourself into all things, disregarding ones pursuit of happiness.
You demand to be felt.
