Ugliness Inside

Everything within me is broken;
my scars are on the inside.


My thoughts suffocate;
my mind is a prison cell.


Sentenced to solitary confinement,
condemned to reclusivity.


There's a tornado in my head,
swirling rage seeps from pores.


Emotions take control
and I surrender to them,
a slave to where they take me.


The darkest parts of me
rise to the surface
like a toxic vomit.


My spitefulness spews
like a violent brew
concocted deep within.


It poisons everything around me,
as all flee in shock
of the ugliness inside me.
