Story a day: 2.25.16

Prompt: Today’s form is tanka. Sorry, it’s been a day of days. I’m going with something simple.

Syllables are: 5-7-5-7-7. Similar to a haiku.

What I want to scream –
Are there enough hard, ugly words
That sting like acid
When it gushes up my throat?
I lack words that truly burn
