Rage builds up and at one point you gotta let it out

there may be some grammer mistakes, i didnt check them

im face turns from a tanned color to a pale white
my eyes turn red and my lips pierce into one
my hands hang down at my sides in little balls of fist

im peeling with rage
dammit, why cant you understand?
all i want to do is to scream and make you listen
you dont notice until my angry tears hit the table

you look up as if you didnt know what was wrong
that only brings more rage
i dont want to say a thing
i want to yell at you, but i cant

i just wish you'd stop trying to change me
and start looking into my soul and see the great things in it
you keep on saying God would have wanted it this way
all i can do is look at you and scream inside

our arguement heats up and up unto a fire
i charge out of the house to cool down
i walk for hours screaming  inside and huffing on the out

i look up and hear the sky
it begins to cry
harder and harder does the rain come down
and washes my anger away

i sit on the ground thinking and crying with the rain
"i guess not its time."
i walk home
with my anger cooled down to embers i walk in

Hey Penelope :) You are very honest in this poem and it takes a very secure and talented writer to do that. This poem shows your vulnerable side as well as your angrier one. You show a lot of talent here and I hope you keep writing! Take care, Regan

Good job in expressing your anger. But, what did you mean
"God would have wanted it this way"? Just a quick question.

Hey, this was a very awsome poem. I keep trying to find ways to describe my anger, but you described yours and I feel as if you're describing mine as well. I can't control my temper, but I"ve been trying to reign it in. This poem was just amazing. I look forward to reading more.

I liked it.
Just remember you have to capitalize every word that starts a new line. :3
Just tryin' to help.
Besides that, a very good poem, indeed.

((I'd love it, if you'd check out some of my poems and give me some feedback.))

What incredibly odd figurative language. "Peeling with anger"? Brilliant, I love it, it sets this odd sense of the omission and emission of joy and happiness in place of fear and anger. Bloody well done, I love it.

:) i think that was one of the raddest messages i have gotten on booksie. thank you.

This is good, but just a reminder to capitalize every new sentence in a poem.
The meaning behind it was great. I enjoyed reading it.

Alrighty, I'll do that from now on. Thanks.
