The Power of a Sigh

by bmethner

With hiss railed
Pressure released
The voice of the soul wailed
Like hell's ferociously fierce beast
Blazes like the sun rising in the east
Quietly declared psychological warfare
Expanding intention like baker's yeast
Creating space for breath at least
Clutching anger's guardrail
Raw edge decreased
Voices quailed
