The Aftermath of Anger

Updated on March 27, 2014

The glass shattered as the pieces slowly fell, I could see the sparkles raining down like fireworks.

My anger is raging and getting hotter as time goes by.

Regretful words are spoken.

My mind is telling me that I must break things to make this episode go away.

I go through my bedroom like a tornado.

And the aftermath is disaster.

The once well put together place, my sanctuary, is full of destruction.

I pick up my shoe with a 3 inch heel and throw it at the door.

A huge hole has formed.

Like the hole of anger that I am sinking into.

My anger is still raging and is getting more hotter than it ever has before.

An uncontrollable force that have rendered me helpless.

I am under its spell.

Just a few minutes ago, my smile lit up the room.

I was in a happy place.

And in a moments notice.

I blow up like a bomb.

But then I am diffused.

I come back down to reality.

Unbelieving of what I have done.

I grab a broom and attempt to piece things back together.

The rewind button of this episode has been pressed.

Ready for play when my anger decides to show its ugly face again

      Aftermath of anger is peace, because once the content is spilled you become vacant. Feeling of emptiness is also a wonderful feeling. Your poem is vivid and descriptive.

      sassyk73, you've done an excellent job of describing that searing anger that looms and threatens to...or does explode...leaving a wake of destruction in its path. Yes, I've felt this ... and it isn't pretty but...I've heard that releasing anger is much better (for the one who is angry) than holding it in. And, unless we're dead, we ALL feel anger now and then...often and not so often. so...very human! The aftermath is, well, a mess and, God forbid, that there be another nearby...oy vey!!!

      UP Awesome, Useful and Interesting (now I know I'm not alone !! LO)

      Hi Sassy,

      You have such a unique way of describing what is really going on within brief moments of time. I was thrilled to hear that there is a rewind button :) I hope for you the rewind button gets stuck in that position. I hope you are well today! Excellent writing BTW . . .
