Unknown Cause

When he left the room
I tore apart
everything
in my head
I threw books from their shelves
kicked over the couch
knocked over tables and chairs
ripped posters from the walls
crazed and reckless
I cleared the mantle
with one fatal sweep

He returned
and I just sat there
hands folded in my lap
and eyes bright
as if
watching
birds in an open sky
