Scarlet .....


Anger - Poem by Scarlet .....

it boils within
slowly poisoning all that it touches
corrupting all that is within
it has now reached a new level
a level I never thought existed
for it has boiled over everything
everything I have
everything I’ve worked to keep
for I am now totally corrupted
drowning in poison
the poison of my life
the poison you all help create
the poison that has been growing within me
anger
anger is that poison
anger is the poison within
the thing that is eating me alive
eating me from within
corrupting every cell of me
turning me in to a corruption
for now I am just a corruption
corruption...

    (Anger - Poem by Scarlet..…)

    anger is that poison
    anger is the poison within
    the thing that is eating me alive
    eating me from within

    Quite a vivid statement. This poem is so pictorial. Sincerely hope things get better for the poet.

    Anger pulls every inch from within and crushes one like an earthquake crushing the earth. A darkness so entrenched within one can no longer think of the possibility of light if we allow ourselves to be manipulated by this beast. This is a poem that slaps one into reality and perhaps its message will search the senses and bring us out of any such pain. Thank you for sharing such a bold description of a tiger of emotion...Much appreciated..... (Report)Reply

    Oh my that is dark and yes I so do believe, anger corrupts the soul, causes so much pain. You definitely delivered the feel, taste and overwhelming displeasure of anger...Excellent..... (Report)Reply

    Anger is surely a killer in disguise! It creeps up behind us...and murders our inner spirit! Don't let it do that you you! Find a way (like writing) , to put anger where it belongs. You control it, don't let it control you...
    Hugs,

    U.U.,
    Here I was thinking that I was the only person on the planet,
    that ever got frustrated,
    the only on that ever got pissed off,
    the only raw deal ever dealt,
    but, truth be told,
    I am one of the few that overcame that!

    How about you ?

    Anger and revenge even, if on yourself are destructive poisons!
    Please get a hold of yourself! Let the light flow in!
