Limited Anger


photo from

Ears ring

Hiss and Snap
not a kettle or pot boiling

Something inside

I just want to be mad for awhile
I want to rage
to holler and yell
I want the world to suffer perceived injustice
with me
I don’t want to look for the positive
or see any silver lining

The limit has been reached
Any limit
My limit

I want to let emotions flow
tears to fall
I want to steam and boil
a sulphuric geyser field
shooting energy
into the sky
a powerful force
yet beautiful to behold
bursting confines


As quickly as the eruption

I want that moment

Let me shed
destructive thoughts
feel angry
voice my pain

Then subside

Peace restored
