I Am the Eye of the Storm

Ruby red mouth
Of lips chewed
By anxiety
Salted taste
Of unshed tears
Coats my throat
Roughened by withholding
Sucking in
The pain and fear
Churning my insides
Sunny on the outside
Grey thunderstorm brewing
Pouring beneath a façade
Love in the mirror lost
Hope in the heart crushed
Future faded to nonexistence
The only thing that still is
This hell that I’m treading
The one you don’t know about
