"Enraged"

"The anger takes over like an infection, a disease. There is no cure for rage. It becomes me"

     Its so hard to play the nice guy
when I just want to punch a wall,
break the skin and bones.
You will be my downfall...

     ...No, I can't just blame you
for the red discoloration on my face,
the heat and hate boiling inside.
     I'm ready to seal your fate...

Not with a kiss this time,
more like a cold blade,
sharp and two-edged, I'll slice
     ...until your soul fades.

I'm running rampant inside,
ready to combust.
My mouth tastes of fire,
     ...burning blood and rust.

I'm using all my might to fight this,
but the anger is just too strong.
I'm starting to slip again,
     perhaps...I was already gone.

A fiery poem Ms. Nikki. You are a true warrior with words I must say.

You wisely explore a realm I know all to well, that is, not in the course of hurting anyone, but with my punching of walls and breaking my own skin and bones (not to mention the walls), and we're not even talking about the years of a rage driven work mode where I not only destroyed myself, but everything within reach.

But, wonderfully, that all is a distant memory, though I'm reminded of that past lifetime by your beautiful, soulful writing.

How is it someone so young knows of such things...

Read this, it is so angry... it's amazing how we can explode in a fury of emotions yet when we calm down and funnel our thoughts into words, the result is amazing poetry like this. :)

Great hub.

yes. writing calms me. I started it in anger and by the time the poem was done, even half way done, i wasnt as mad.
