an ode to anger

I want to sit in a dark room
with the stereo turned up, way up.
I want the blaring speakers to snuff out my anger
drown out my wails until there are no more.

I want that time alone.

I want this all to go away.

I want those around me to cope
to take their anger and deal with it
not dump it on me
and run


I want to live in denial

but I've been in a recovery process
doing healing work for far too long
to know
that denial will only rob me
of some of the things that I know
needs to get done.
