Anger walks out

anger, seething within

intense,dense

colors everything

knits your brows

rasps your breaths

fogs your eyes

fastens your steps

anger pinches your core

surprises and shocks you

with its very existence

and it excesses

anger clogs your head

ties your tongue

or lets it too loose

clenches your fists

glares your eyes

anger rushes you

pushes you to do more than you can

nudges you to seek more and live more

horrifies you with its deep darkness

kills your slow smile and tender moments

good friend, anger

now don’t be angry

when I say

you have run your course

it’s time to say good bye

if need be

you will be called

yet, stay away

light living, lighter moments

till then! Ciao!

  1. Lots of material for thought here. I had always been taught to avoided anger, or try to control it.. In fact so much of the cultural background here, at least in my day, communicated a suspicion of all emotions. But anger, particularly in western religious traditions, is especially heartful–to the one overcome by it but also to relationships.

    And so, I hadn’t thought of anger this way: “push[ing] you to do more than you can / [nudging] you to seek more and live more.” That does sound like a “good friend” —

    even though what comes next, how it “horrifies you with its deep darkness / kills your slow smile and tender moments” (which is quite beautifully said) raises questions, or at least doubts. Regardless, you have painted a very detailed, accurate, and revelatory picture. I now have a somewhat broader view.
