A spirit enshrouded in darkness
Angry thoughts under his eyelids
His soul withering in pain
And his conscious fighting in vain

Heart once warm and inviting
Now ice cold and frightening
Rage pure because someone did him wrong
Muscles shaking like the ringing of a gong

He's focused and his thoughts are clear
To somehow entrench the wrongdoer in fear
Yet no ones done wrong, their feelings just aren't the same
The wrongdoer was a woman, who put his feelings to shame

So for a while he's mad at everyone
Mad at the earth, and mad at the sun
He must go through all the stages of grief
Until tears leave his eyes and he finds his release

Love is dangerous, not everyone survives
The trial by error test, to find Mrs. right
You must have the courage, the will to continue on
When your heart has been broken and it's beats are not strong

    Wonderful poetry here. I like the way you arrange your words, and I love the way it had a softer ending.

    A good outlet for anger is putting it into words, and a better outlet than words is poetry. Makes an ugly thing lovely. Well done.

    Thank you. i have found it to be very relaxing to write down emotions/feelings. You will find that all my poems have some kind of feeling in them from my life. Thank you for reading. It wasn't done when u first read it but it's now complete.

    I do not ususally get this angry, but sometimes I spout off and end up shaking.You have caught the element of anger by it's tail end.
