Anger

You cut me!
Words, but a cut all the same.
Rather steel to my skin than your sharpened wit.
My sword is my anger,
Lashing out to defend your attack.
Anger always wins.
My hollow victory celebrated by loneliness.

    “Rather steel to my skin than your sharpened wit.”

    “My hollow victory celebrated by loneliness.”

    Excellent use of metaphor and power of expression here.
