Mask of Sanity
this Cloak of Civility
churning to a boil
stoked by Rage
spluttering molten blood
from unspeakable desire
sweet, sweet the ache
I am a blaze
I am a boil

Years ago I would read or hear of news stories like the ones above and wondered how I would react. Would I be able to walk away and leave it to the hands of the police.

This poem came from that experience. Those emotions I felt.
