"Seeing red" i believe is the expression

Before it arrives
All emotions strive
To prevent loss of control
Of a fire inside
Difficult to describe
Impossible to hide
In my heart it resides
For me to feel
For me to heal
Only revealed
For others to see
Through catastrophic actions
A sudden impact
Makes the fire contract
Now withdrawn
Not fully gone
It left me a token
A pale faced body
All twisted and broken.......

Wow. Every line a straight-edged blade slicing through the heart and the mind and invoking such thought that all you can do is stop and lose yourself within that bottomless hole of meditation cut by that blade. Nice work.
