Dear Anger*

*Part of the  free verse “Dear Series” collaboration with my poetry Queen, my dear soul-sister, my cheerleader and encourager, my lovely friend, Nandita of Manan Unleashed.
My dear Nandita has recently bid adieu to the blogging world (sadly) but we agreed to continue with our Dear Series. For readers who miss her eloquent poems (like me), Nandita ‘Manan’ Yata has recently released her debut book “Passion in Poetry: Whispers from the Soul”.

Dear Anger*

My scheming threads
can turn you into a puppet
A heartless, mindless robot
with fiery soul, corrupted.

Good intentions are my harness
Best wishes I don’t overrate
No space in my heart for malice
Such a soul is immaculate

Once you dive into my cliff
you will surely sink,
I bet no one will help you
until you die and shrink.

Contentment is my guide
On joyous clouds I float
Love will help me glide
Should I fall off my boat

‘Cause I am a fierce poison
that unleashes your inner demons.
Yes, I am a strong force
that’s too hard to reckon.

My demons I’ll tether
with kindness and empathy
Try your best Dear Anger
Love conquers all, I’m happy.
