Power Struggles

they ask me about my
..........unintelligence
begging the
..........question
of sanity
..........not listening to the words
.....coming out of
..........my mouth
accusatory
.....inflammatory
..........derogatory
smiting scowls
pointing fingers
......that look of
...............disappointment and
....................disapproval
like a razor
.....sharp tongue
reaching through bruised
skin
.....deep within
...............to a core
beaten down
.....with passivity
a whole conglomeration of
..........bottled
nothingness
.....left to ferment
to become the same
..........evil awfulness
that shadows light
of hope
.....escape
..........freedom
and the storm steams over
.....weighty irons undoing
..........every fold
revealing flaws
.....destroying fabric
into threads
that wither
.....rot
.....decay
.....fray
and knot again

I think I'd like to see this thread that rots, decays, frays, and knots again.
That must be some interesting thread.
