Dear Anger

Dear Anger,
I don't need you.
Anger,
googling how to conceal you.
Anger,
at the ones who don't mean it.
Anger,
my captain, my ship.
Anger,
sinking in the blue abyss.
Anger,
"Breathe honey, and think happily."
Anger,
because it's my anchor.
Anger,
becuase I am prone to danger.
Anger,
because sadness is too big a defeat.
Anger,
as I weep at your feet.
Anger,
because you are the most powerful drive.
Anger,
what I'd do to survive.
Anger,
your rush gives me hives.
Anger,
what you see behind my eyes.
Anger,
boiling, spilling, foaming over.
Anger,
will I see you again, say, next September?
Oh Anger,
I don't need you 
-but want,
want is another tale.
So long and frail,
that overuse, seems to be abuse.
Oh Anger,
I try to conceal you,
but I still feel you.
I try to console you,
but that makes you revolt too.
Anger.
I am angry with you.
I almost hate you.
Anger, 
I am you.
Sincerely,
Sorrow,
sadness,
devoid of happiness.
