Just Out of Reach

Anger is a deadly friend,
it’s destination just out of site,
it’s true nature an illusion on the road.

It replaces sadness and pain,
masks disappointment.

With it, I have become harder; stronger.
It slips in easily and heats my soul,
fire consuming my spine, dissolving my heart.

I would give it up to remove the calluses,
for a sweeter taste at life.
