Poetry Prompt #6

Hello everyone, and welcome to the last Monday of August! It’s crazy how fast this month flew by 😱

Anyways, as it’s a new week, it’s time for another Poetry Prompt! This one is courtesy of my Write the Poem journal, and I’ll go ahead and post the prompt below:

Prompt:Word Associations
Anger Acrimony

Before I go any further, I want to mention that this month, I won’t be doing my regular Friday posts, because I’m working on/preparing a personal project which will be coming out next month. Unless I feel like posting something on Friday, there’s only going to be Monday and Wednesday posts.

Now that we got that out of the way, here’s what I came up with for this prompt. Enjoy!

It curls in the pit of your stomach,

Resting until the moment is right.

You’ll know when it is,

As it bubbles up inside,

Trying to push itself out of your body.

An explosion of rage,

Striking everyone around you.

This is what you keep hidden,

Deep within your soul,

Scared of its intensity,

Of how it will be expressed.

So you push it back down,

Fight against it,

Suppressing it,

Burying it down far enough,

That no one can awaken it,

That fury which poisons you.

Thank you for reading, and I hope the rest of your day goes well! I will see you Wednesday with a new post!
