Internal Inferno

I'm a contained explosion,
Invisible from without,
A raging fire,
That refuses to be put out.

But there's a fathomless
Chasm of sadness,
That I wish would just swallow
The madness.

Because this dichotomy trapped within,
Is threatening to win, and skin
Me alive, there's nowhere to hide,

Not when I myself am the sin.
