100 Word Challenge: Emotion

Tara, over at Thin Spiral Notebook, gave us the word emotion for our #100 Word Challenge this week.  I do not know what it is, but her prompts have been dancing with my poetry muse lately.  Here’s one more round of poetry for the challenge.  Also, be sure to stop by and see how other great authors treated this prompt via the badge below or the link above!

A storm is brewing
Welling
Looming

Pressure
In my chest
Behind my eyes

The storm
Now a tempest
Threatens to break free

My containment
Cracks
Tears leak out

Tension
A pause
Did the boundaries hold

The tempest
Breaks loose
Raging

It grows
Wild
Out of control

Clashing
Moving
A living thing

Frightening
In its intensity
Ferocity

Darkness deepens
Strengthens
Consumes

Flashes of lightning
Illuminate my mind
Rugged landscape

Mountains of worry
Grow larger
Biting my soul

Valleys of inkiness
Cracking
Lacing my vista

Torn up trees
Birds hidden in branches
Cowering before the gale

Like a cloudburst
Energy drains
Spent
