Evolving Emotions: Anger- Poetry



Flecks of glass across hardwood

shimmering in refreshed morning light

like faux emeralds.


Chair legs rest

splintered and sharp

near the toppled kitchen table

that you bought with her.


Looking down

knuckles: green and yellow

with blistery red accents.


Your eyes are red too

like burst fireworks

or spider webs.


Spent, you sit

on an old wine stain

the carpet carries

letting an empty home fill your head

with silence deserved.
