Anger

He clutched his 
hands in tight fists,
to keep his anger inside,
until you say something 
that sets him off.

You look at the red 
flames in his eyes,
trying to find 
his good side.

He slams the door,
and runs as fast as 
he can, spilling his anger.

He takes a deep breath,
and tells himself to calm 
down, the flames in his 
eyes disappear, his clutched 
fists lay resting at his side.

Best way to simmer off rather than use violence.
