Animus Contagion

Constant echoes of thoughts
To fade into the past
Returning clear in the present
Awakening what was lost
Consuming what was there
Burning eyes
Trembling hands
The blood runs hot
Where is your humanity?
It suffocates under the weight of your hate
Heart is in discord
Limbs jerk in spasms
A spreading paroxysm
Fists clinched with rage
Why do you feed it?
The animus
To bring it release
To give it form
A distorted face
It takes power over man
An emotion he can't control
