Aishwariya's LittLog

On Books, Writing, Editing, and More

What is this

But a crimson hue?

A shade of red

Amidst the brown

On your pale skin

A monumental din

Oh! To keep things within

But you erupt

Like a volcano 

Time and time again

A molten lava

Flows through your veins

Cools on the surface

Of your face

A strange shade or hue

That’s unlike you

As you make sense

Of what it’s about

Will anger erupt again?

You wonder out loud.

  3. Anger and its uninvited after-effects like it’s hangover and guilt are painful. Suppressing it is even more dangerous. Hope we learn to get over it. How wonderfully you compared molten lava with the angry face.

    Of your face ?

  4. The imagery of molten lava in your veins was so powerful. Red and brown and lava – interesting analogies for anger.
