Vengance


So many times,
I've wanted revenge.
I've longed for power.
So many times,
I've wanted to kill.

To kill for another life,
To kill for stupidity,
To kill for no reason.

I've come to notice,
That anger can be powerful,
But very harmful.

Darkness can cloud one's mind,
And fury will replace one's blood.
Like dark champagne,
Flowing, seeping.

I've wanted to kill,
To hide my skeletons,
In my closet.
I've wanted to kill,
To prevent humiliation.

I cannot let this dark poison,
Diffuse within my blood.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
