Actualised And Assumed

It was a defence mechanism,

I realise now,

The detachment,

Which was seen as anger,

The avoidance,

That was highlighted as anger,

The multitudes of emotions,

Only recognised as anger,

Why it is anger,

And not grief, sadness, ignorance,

And so much more,

That I don't realise yet,

Maybe because anger is easy to define,

And everything else is just underlying,

Because maybe anger is so misunderstood,

And everything is just difficult to acknowledge,

Maybe because I've been angry,

For the very reason that it wasn't anger in the first place,

I was never angry,

I was hurt,

Hurt was never actualised,

But anger was always assumed.
