Anger builds
Breathing quickens
Carelessness overrides
Dangerous thoughts enter
Exasperating minutes pass by
Frustrations become uncontrolled
Graciousness no longer enters the mind
Harm becomes the cornerstone of the heart
Infuriation enters an already impatient thought
Justice triumphs and overrules as it seeks its prey
Kindred spirits fade into the dark chasm of oblivion
Ludicrous conditions add to the madness of the moment
Madness rises up and churns from the center of the brain
Notorious enemies blur reality and cause insanity to take over
Optimism is no longer an option as the bright side does not exist
Pessimism is the true reality and key to the forthcoming confrontation
Quarrelling eventually postpones this particular unresolved disagreement
Rivalry has become the primeval essence of the pending state of future affairs
Saliva begins to drip and the tongue hangs out as the mind prepares for contest
Twisted thoughts overpower the true definition of what realty has, at last, become
Urgent priorities overwhelm the eyes' ability to pierce without irrational logic or fact
Values are nonexistent and the mind plays games, while idealism reigns supreme within
Wisdom is great but has no place when the equation of success becomes the ultimate goal
X-ray vision would be a great advantage to penetrate the mind of the antagonist challenger
Youthfulness has the advantage over the skills of the experienced, reality checks in - itís time
Zealous passion rides against the wind, leaps the fence in one single bound and recovers his bone.

I love how this poem illustrates escalating anger, just through its very structure! The imagery was great too!
Marilyn Schnepp 08/11/07
A very expressive dictionary defining the word "anger" to a "T" - or rather to a "T-bone". (*.*) Nice job, well done!
Dee Yoder 08/11/07
Wow, does this ever describe the build-up of anger! And the unique format adds to the description. I think the shape draws a powerful visual image in this poem.
Kristen Hester08/13/07
This is so creative and clever. You have given so many images of anger. Great job.
Joy Faire Stewart08/16/07
Oh the emotion in your writing and your reader can feel it building. And I love the format. Excellent writing.
Kenn Allan08/16/07
You scored 7th in Advanced and 25th overall. Pretty cool!
Seema Bagai 08/16/07
Wow! Every line is a new description of anger. Loved this piece.
Val Clark08/16/07
This is really impressive acrostic, Chrissy. Lus each line is a unit of thought in its own right and yet make sense when the reader runs it into the next line.

'Optimism is no longer an option as the bright side does not exist/
Pessimism is the true reality and key to the forthcoming confrontation.'

Them's fightin' words. :-)

I hate to say, I told you so, so I wont:) I loved this! The form, the build up and then that last line! Wow! I'm glad you scored so high. This piece is very deserving of high praise. Well done dear friend!
Pat Guy 08/18/07
I really, really, REALLY enjoyed everything about this - all the way through.

And I LOVED the form.

Kudos on an excellent piece!!!
