His Anger


He was overconfident, but misunderstood

His words were twisted and misinterpreted

to the point of something vile and scary

the others watched carefully listening

with a thirst for blood

he only longed for her to see through

the words he spat as they provoked him

he needed her to believe

that they were sending him

even further off the edge

that the man he kept locked in a cage

was going to surface soon

as she showed him which side she believed

…his enemies

he grew colder

and the emptiness spread

until the cage unlocked

and the beast was out
