Anger Issues

written by: Angie Brocker



I never wanted anger to enter my heart
But I wonder what color my soul is now
Some things just won’t let go
I feel the hold they have on me as they seep into my skin
Inching into my pores
Invading my blood
Making it burn hot as it churns thick like butter
Sliding slowly, creeping through my cold veins
As though it’s a drug I never wanted to inject again
But I’m addicted
Clutching my head to subdue the feelings
I no longer wish to associate with
But it only shakes more of them loose
I must not be worthy to be in control
