Anger


We felt the hit,
It came so hard on us;
Those words erupted with fury,
Like a sharp piercing
Reaching as deep as the marrow-
We both laid in mystifying silence,
Torturing phrases raced through our battered minds
Venomous vapour feasted upon our brittled emotions
Splatters of pain ripped our souls in pieces
And deep bitterness threatened hot tears
As we recount the tale that rent our hearts apart

We sought solace beneath the drifting clouds
We watched the spectrum of colours
Quietly straying away-
We have lost so much to rage; and
Much more was left amidst
A poisonous plague possessed our passion,
The stretch of exhaustion had drained our strength,
The grip of vengeance ravages our thoughts
As the gentle voice echoed still-
'anger lies in the bosom of fools'.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
