Anger seethes.

it roils

boiling over,

mixing with flame

fighting its way to be seen

to be made present.



it shuns the mask of civility

and lives in that clean raw place

we so like to hide.

it lives beneath

the smile pasted on,

the polite word uttered,

the eyes which gaze on and over.



mistake it not.

its job is fulfilled only when we allow it's face

to shine a bit more brightly

as it tells us of the dark heart

betrayed.

      A brilliant expression of anger. "it shuns the mask of civility

      and lives in that clean raw place

      we so like to hide." So very true. Sharing.

      Anger does bubble up, but sometimes it's necessary if we can channel it in the right direction and then good may be able to come from it. Love your poem.
