Anger, is nasty,anger is harsh and  mean

Anger is aggressive and it always causes a scene.

Anger is childish  demanding  everyone’s attention

Anger, kicking out and punching, smashing all convention.


Anger laughs when you break down and cry

Never does it give a shit nor will it ever explain why.

Growing in the dark, feeding on insecurities and  hate

Ever feeding  panic and dripping acid on  good grace.

Ripping away at your innards clawing growing a pace.


Anger is ever present spoiling everything it touches

Anger a vicious bitch  kicking away your crutches.

Anger  is a cancer chewing at your bowl

Anger never flinches however much you howl.


Anger laughs when you break down and cry

Never does it give a shit nor will it ever explain why.

Growing in the dark, feeding on insecurities and  hate

Ever feeding  panic and dripping acid on  good grace.

Ripping away at your innards clawing growing a pace.


Anger is malicious back stabbing and snide

Anger can rip you apart and toss you to one side.

Anger will suck your blood and gnaw on your bones

Anger will drain you of life and dump lost and alone.


Anger is ever present stripping the good away

Never giving in,chipping away at you night and day

Growing and gathering momentum  consuming you from within

Ever whispering viscous poison in your ear whilst fixing you with a grin

Recoiling at the slightest sign of kindness Anger, Anger is a bloody sin!

    I could identify with every word.
    Not because I am an angry person, but because I easily could be due to my pain.
    I fight anger every second of every day.

    Brilliant Willow x

    Perfectly said. You addressed every point about anger and its destruction perfectly. I like this; I could identify with it; and you’ve shown me that I’ve left a lot of anger behind.

    everyone has anger at times, it is good if we put it into poetry instead of throw it toward our loved ones.

    Don’t punish yourself for falling in these traps but, if there’s anything that could serve you is, beware of losing your heart and peace over anything or anyone who’s bent to control you. I’m sorry and cherish you dear.

    I Believe sometimes a person has to let their anger out, which is a healthy thing. You just need to be around people who you love, so they understand.

    Excellent, Willow. Anger is destructive & a big flare up which hides real issues. Really well written (& love the pic).
