It Burns

It Burns
 me to see such animosity
  Such
open Hostility
It Burns
 to see the looks of helplessness
  Such
open Anguish
It Burns
 to have tears that have no nearing end
  bitter
  acidic
too damn painful
And It Burns
 it Burns
 it BURNS
how dare the masses
 turn on their conscience
 whenever to their liking
  stomping in their parades of civility
bettering the world one penny at a time
don’t you dare
 ask me
 how is it that my nerves of feeling
 have been shredded to meaningless
Hearing my Sade pleading to the stone in my heart
how they dare
 grin at my lack of stability
  my
so ever resolved charm to end this hazardous tragedy
Yet
damn it
It Burns
my
mind is numb
  unfocused
  unsure
  unsatisfied
    and
made an unbeliever
my
hands are frozen
  unsteady
  unpreoccupied
  unloved
    and
made useless
    and
my feet lie still…  dragged into destitute
It must be stopped
                crushed
                purged
                anointed
                loved
          and reborn
But
don’t dare ask me why
It Burns
