Rage - Poem by Jennifer Sol

A twisting burning fire
Welling up from deep inside
Climbing higher the crimson flame
It wants blood
It desires to see pain
The embers cackle
It really isn’t right
But anger feels so good
The rage is fighting to be free
Clawing at my insides
Begging to be released
Longing to cause pain
Common sense fights back
Shoving the anger down
Desperately trying to
Put out the flame
Two strong wills
Go head to head
Stubborn
Each desires to win
The fire twists and turns
Attempting to escape the firm grasp
The grasp is strong pushing
The rage back inside
The fuel is gone…
The embers wail in defeat
The raging fire dies down
The crimson flame flickers
And the anger is gone
Gone back to it’s captive place
Where it will fester
And surely grow again
