Arctic Monstrosity

Arctic
monstrosity
slithers like a serpent,
enveloping all that obstructs
its path.

Seeping
relentlessly into breaches,
seeking out sentience,
eager to end
us all.

Feathered
Brushstrokes flutter across the sky,
Traveling on a breeze,
Destination
Unknown.

The 7 Deadly Sins ~ Day 4, Wrath

I knew I would struggle with this one. I don’t handle anger well. I would walk a thousand miles to avoid confrontation. There have been more than a few who have invoked my rage and never knew it. I don’t “clear the air”. I just walk away, usually forever.

Being near the contempt of others, even if not directed at me, also causes me a great deal of anxiety. It fills me with a sense of losing control. The angry are much too unpredictable. I like to know that I can regulate my surroundings. Wrath takes that security from me.

Vengeance is my enemy. Not surprisingly, I didn’t feel like confronting my enemy today. I wrote this about a bitter man, an abusive alcoholic. It is based on reality, but not my reality.

Havoc
In a shot glass
Demons await release
He consumes it; it consumes him
Blind rage

Regret
Need to forget
The drinking never stops
Because the drinks absolve his sins
Stalemate
