I feel this rage
and stored deep within
shaking and shifting
jerking and moving around within me
an uncontrollable wrath
a repressed frustration
a repetitious tantrum
a silent scream
just another day.
another night of loneliness
wasted tears and mascara stain my pillow case
my heart slowly cracks
like an iceberg
not down the middle
not in two
but into a thousand tiny pieces
a reminder of meaningless existence
filled with mirrors and imperfections
I once heard that imperfections are beautiful
I think that’s bullshit
but then again
among all the beautiful people
in such a fucked up little world
– Erika Fuego
Perfection, once again. You capture this feeling so well, although it’s kinda hard to put into words, but you’ve managed it wonderfully.
You are very talented, young lady!
Thank you my beautiful friend.
Great poem! You capture emotions so well! Thanks for the follow!
Awesome imagery, truly conveys the essence of your emotions. I really feel this one!

Very powerful poem! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
It was my pleasure. Thank you for reading! 🙂
i have lived this piece – word for word and still do. you have certainly captured the emotion and ‘sucky’ feelings. it is always a gift to find a writer who can place one’s feelings into words.
Thank you so much. I am flattered. appreciate your feed back.
H!, The beauty of your temple–is my dream for today–the fire in your eyes–is like a Galaxy of Stars–that turns the darkness of night–to the light of day–the taste of your lips–is like the sweetness of candy–the movement of your body–is like a gentle breeze–that flows in the darkness of night–that gently lays–on the crest of the moon–with a passion of love–a gift from God–for the rest of your life.

I love that. So beautifully written. Is that for me?
Painfully intense. MM 🍀
Beautiful. It flows so painfully.
Thank you so much Ryan. <33
I’ve been reading through your poetry and your work is intense. Every word is intense, potent, and essential in encapsulating the essence of the topic. I look forward to reading more in the future!
wow, thank you so much. I really am flattered and inspired to write more. Thank you so much for reading my stuff and for the feedback. It means the world to me.
A great piece Erika. It’s strange how when we are at our darkest we believe that everyone else is better, more beautiful, happier etc. Yet scratch the surface of this fucked up little world and we find multitudes of fellow sufferers all trying to hide away.
You are so right. It is when we are with out that we should go within and instead we do the opposite.
Really love your poetry!
Thank you so much. I appreciate that. 🙂
senorita E, very powerful, hits so many feeling, filling with emotions. hugs and howls for you

All simply written words are so powerful. As I read each word , I feel a throbbing pain getting only deeper..
The loneliness that I live with too
Nobodies that I have too
Thanks for showing how I feel
By vocalizing how you feel
wow, thank you so much. Sometimes i think I’m the only one that feels that emptiness. like there’s something wrong with me. I really appreciate your feed back.
Something about your poetry makes me want to rescue you. And that makes me like it… not because of the “rescuing” per se… but because poetry should move people…
