Fury burning hot and suffocating
Anger red and raw
Resentment a toxin fatal and nauseating
Hatred a gnarled grasping claw

My rage festers withing a decaying shell
As I indifferently choose to reign it in
That same irritation that I know so well
May buy me a one stop trip into Hell

There's a face in the fire that's calling out to me
Beckoning with talons so tauntingly sweet
Trying to shape my mind into what it desires it to be
Looking forward to the day that I'd admit my defeat

Temperance pulls me into a comforting embrace
Forgiveness pulls me out of the smoke
Hope smiles with a shining face
Peace flows beside it wearing a silver cloak

Nurturing optimism with a gentle hand
Piecing it together without pause
With full understanding flowing like sand
Allowing me to avoid wrath's yawning jaws

There's a face in the fire that's calling out to me
Beckoning with talons so tauntingly sweet
Trying to shape my mind into what it desires it to be
Looking forward to the day that I'd admit my defeat

Great to know that rhyming is not forgotten

Anyone who has ever felt anger has felt something to this degree (no pun intended). You have a way with words, especially since you can craft them into awesomeness like this. :3

Was this more difficult because it was rhyming?

And you're welcome! :D

Not so much. When you have a freakish ability to retain info like me, you don't really give it much thought lol.........Well I did have to use a rhyming dictionary a little.

Chills I've got chills like literal goosepimples from reading this Ooo I can feel it... I love your wording it makes it sound so tempting to just give in to the will of your anger. *shivers* I think you found your miss man I honestly think you did.
