Overreactor

Invisibly stewing at a distance
Prematurely aged by anger
Seething under the bland surface
A cauldron of venom brewing
Catastrophic thinking taking over
 
Body aching to act
Frozen by a tiny shred of conscience
Quiet rage endlessly percolating
Spreading its irresistible propaganda
Until there is unity
 
Misunderstanding fuelling outrage
An unshakeable addiction
Running interference with reality
Passing the buck to a convenient boogeyman
So many to choose from
 
Immune to reason
Opposed to rationality
Stubbornness a clingy virtue
Interfering with the feelings
That need to be acted on
 
Repelled by touch
Annoyed by lecture
Aggravated with inaction
Isolated into a hollow existence
Horrific visions unrealized
 
The last remnant of positivity
The last obstacle to immortality
Not easily disposed
Self-contained nightmare
Impatiently waiting
