Feeling unsettled
Anger in hiding
Hiding, concealed,
Needing to dissipate
Into thin air
Air already toxic with
Unexpressed emotions
Undetectable–behind a mask
Needing to evaporate
Dissolve, disappear
Pressure building
Invisible rage
Ready to explode
The unforeseeable response
About to erupt
Visible destruction

Written in response to Merril’s challenge on dverse, Poetics: Invisible.

I was feeling unsettled, agitated… then I realized I could use this prompt to relinquish the feelings. Thank you for reading!
