Loud

Being alone was all I wanted,

take time to read,to watch,to sing,to listen

anything I want ,without anyone giving me ‘the look’

Now all these years later I sit here,on the ground,

with my books that have long gathered dust between their worn out pages,

my songs that the walls recite,

lyrics that refuse to come out of my tired lips

And I realize what was once my castle,is now my coffin

-How can you smile,when all you known is to scream?

Now what do I do?

They told me to fight the norms

I sharpened my nails into claws for that

They told me not to bite back my words

I whet my tongue into a sword for that

They told me to put my emotions behind a smile

I grinded my teeth into fangs for that

I fought my way to the top,bestowing lethal blows

to anyone against me,abandoning those dawdling lackeys

Didn’t look back once,till I reached the top

I turned around exhausted,blood in my tongue and fangs

inside each of my ten fingernails

And then you called me a monster

-How am I a monster?
