It comes over you in an instant,
The flash is as quick as lightning.
You are smiling, then it is gone.
Your eyes are lost, and the anger grows
You become taller, bigger almost bloated
Not seeing or hearing a single thing or person around you
People are shouting at you
Trying to calm you,
Nothing will get in your way
Not him, your best mate,
Not her, your life long friend
It is like you have been taken
Has suddenly overtaken you
He has become you
And all you can see is red
You will not stop
Till the person in your path has had what is coming
You need to hit out, you need to fight
You will hit anyone in your way
The devil red has overtaken
There is on outburst
A firework is lite
And it is an almighty bang
Then the devil is gone.
The red has disappeared
You can see again
Your eyes are back, you can hear
The devil has departed…
Until next time!
