                                                                                                             But why?



The angry girl never had any reason
to squeeze the t
                              e
                                 a
                                    r
                                     s from her eyes and
scream until she felt her throat would tear
other than that
she felt like it.

So she did it anyway.

And didn’t try to make sense of it.




Not so the angry woman.


Little
                                                                                       invisible
things

drag along her teeth
and scrape the surface of her brain

but instead of screaming and crying
now she says
There’s no reason for it…




                                                                       But that doesn’t mean
                                                                                                                it isn’t there.





So she shuts herself                                                                                  away
from the people who don’t deserve
the white-hot
                                                 s                       r                     y
                                                                           p                   a

from the eruption of her rage


and she tries to talk it out of her with reasoning,
and to l
             e
               a
                 k it out of her fingertips,
and to blow it                                                                  away with feigned indifference…


But

she’s not going to scream and cry
this time
because

there’s no reason to,
and it’s not how civilised people behave,
and she can’t justify it,

she’ll just become even angrier as she sits in
angry
                                                                                                                silence
and
reflects on the norms of society holding her inside her own skin
and wonders,




Why the hell shouldn’t she?
At the very least it helped.

A little.

I'm not sure what you have done is called so I shall call it powerful and moving. It's quite like markers on a side walk, hard to see, but with time and talent can be beautiful.

I really like the way this flows, as well as the spacing of words.

I wish I could say something a little more specific, but I'm hung up on the whole peice.
