A Poem by Daniel Gardner

Title says it all...


No one knows the rage within
No one wants to believe it
The shade of red does it no justice
I cannot stand anymore
This rage blisters like a sore
It festers
It oozes
Decaying the flesh around it
They watch as I grab my chest
Feeling the evil blade plunged deep within
My mind is a blaze
The smoke blocking all logic
Its consuming me
Slow my eyes change to black
Cotton drys my mouth
Blood courses out my nose
Finally my rage is set free
Terrified and in pain
I will make everyone suffer
A care I do not have in the world
Only one can guess how it came about
But its to late
A Plague I will unleash
Of fear and no peace.

I can almost feel the rage from this poem. FYI it made me feel angry as I read the words.

Wow. You describe it perfectly... fantastic job.

Strikes a chord. Very interesting expression of that 'burn the world' force that sadly when once set free can not be controlled, calmed, or tamed. Appreciate the sharing.

Anger is expressed very well in this poem, the type of anger that builds up and then is released destructively. Very good.

This is a dark peice, and is wonderful. I understand where you are getting at in this poem. It's really good overall.

Very nice job with this one, definitely has an introspective vibe to it with a little hint of regret. Also, I'm loving the free verse you've got going on here as opposed to the rhyming scheme you had going on in most of your other stuff. Awesome job man!

Rage can be a good thing. We can make it our motivation to do great things. I like this poem. The strong lines made your desire point and ending was outstanding. A outstanding poem.

Very candid introspection….self examination….
An attempt to come to terms with one’s on negative feelings….
That came out as a nice poem to read….and it is really nice…
