Emotionally challenged as the conflict entails,
Red faced and pacing with swear words that gel.
Fury growing, adrenalin’s rushing tide,
Needs a focusing outlet for the tempest to ride.

If left without stoking, it festers and waits
For the hook that will drop, it just needs some bait.
Strong in the clutches in grabbing one’s heart,
The body’s reaction makes shaking limbs start.

The brain is not thinking when blinded in ire,
Control is all lost if burned by the fire.
Fear that consumes us helps create the danger,
A weapon, destroyer, and it is called anger.

    GOOD description of anger. I have come face to face with it many times in my life and I hate it! It is not something I often succumb to so I just don't understand it in others!

    Thank you for reviewing. This is an old one of mine and has probably been revised since posted. I'll have to look and see. Take care. Janet
