I’ve seen it rage
In the red fist
of an agitated heart
Flow gradually like
grains of sand
into a scorpion’s hole
I’ve seen it singe
the edges of
smolder confidence
until it choked the air 
with acrid faith. 
Scream louder
than the
silence of
I’ve seen it
shame a hummingbird
into clipping
her wings
long enough
to constrict the
flow of love
I’ve seen it in me

  1. Powerful Cristina! I especially like the 2nd stanza – unexpected and accurate.
