This poem harnesses a lot of anger for me. It allows me the opportunity to say things that I can not verbalize.

Morbid Recital

Both heartbeat and desire comfort the empty thoughts

Unspoken not is the shared laugh found in silence

Replacing sound

Destructive is the soul that rages within

Terror abounds inside the closed mind

Shattered faith

Darkness prevails when all hope has dissipated

Tears fill the eyes of the saddened spirit

Death looms

Horrified eyes breach the interior of the heart

Flooding the mind with images long past

Not again

Evasive thoughts of the forbidden life unknown

Morbid recital repeated over and over again

This is the best way to release your anger, I know, I did the same thing! Anger is so powerful and controls so many areas in our lives if it consumes us- great that you shared you emotion this way.
