Anger's like a creature

The growl it roars

A creature so tame yet so wild

A creature like a fuse

A fuse that's short

That takes its toll

On contact with flame

A creature pure as snow

Yet black as death

A creature not human in the mind

It can consume its beholder

Like a match stuck onto a rock

A bomb lasting its few seconds

Only one can disassemble the bomb

Or put out the flame

But once put out

Left behind are the embers

Glowing red like its eyes

Withering away into ashes

The ashes grey and emotionless

Grey as its heart
