Misstep

Again
I tread too heavily
I snapped the bitter twigs
I lost my footing, bruised a branch
And now they scream again.

Anger, anger, anger
And my breath breaks up the frost.
Fire burns inside, so hot
Dangerous to touch.

I just want to lash out at someone
Instead, I bite my words.
They cut me back and slice my throat
But surely words can’t hurt?
