My Pure and Unspoiled Anger

Within the clamorous, thunderous din
Of platitudes decayed,
A fortress did I build around
My pure and unspoiled anger.
Defiant of those civilized, yet
Mercenary minds
Whose predatory visions would
Defile my pristine rage,

I locked my passions dark and deep
Behind those solemn walls,
And ruled as solitary king
The palace of my fury.

But breeding only with themselves,
My wrathful echoes died;
I stalk the vacuous corridors,
A beast trapped in a cage.

The gentle sprite turned at the sound
of his splendid wrathful screams
anger filled his lonely cage
and haunted all his dreams.

She drew near and touched his cheek
facing the furious beast
His eyes widened at her daring
his howling suddenly ceased.

She smiled at him with innocence
melting, now, the majestic rage
his visage changed from angry beast
to love-smitten, poetic sage.
