There
is a storm inside her
chest; a miasma of
thundering insecurities and
flashes of despair. The irony
is, she has
astraphobia—but inside her
mismatched veins there lies a
tempest awaiting to be
set free. The most beautiful
people have the ugliest of
scars,
and hers just happen to be a
hurricane of chaotic
doubt marring the insides of her
soul.
"Astraphobia - the fear of storms."

It hasn't been a good couple of days and I needed to vent.

I'm sorry.

The most beautiful pieces are the most honest, and the fact that your willing to share your emotions with is an honor.

I'm sorry for the turbulence, however :hug:

Plus points for using the word "miasma". I felt like the "the irony is" part was a bit too "telling" for the rest of the tone of the poem, but that's just a personal opinion.

Wonderful, wonderful piece. It's a shame you haven't had a good couple of days, but this is great. <3

But I'm glad you were at least able to vent.

The kind of poem that begs to be picked apart. Those are my favorites.

Hope all is well.

Just remember: Outlets are best used when venting is needed. You shouldn't feel sorry. :)

You been going through some stormy weather?

See now that's something a person should be sorry for. Not this piece.

But I do hope everything's okay

That's my favorite part, and the truest in my opinion.
