I scream
and I shout,
swearing at you
to get out.

Tearing plates
off the wall,
I beg you with hateful eyes
to finally fall.

But with head held high
and hands caring
you laugh at me
with my words daring
you to get mad,
get violent,
but you--
you only smile with resent.

The calm manner in which you follow me
just fuels my fury.
Tears filling up my eyes;
I glare out at you
and your understanding lies
that tell me I'm okay,
that you'll forgive me
for anything I say.

All I want is a reaction--
a rise--
a crack in your god d*mn perfect disguise
so I don't have to feel
like a monster for hurting you
the way I always do.

All I want is a reason--
an exuse--
but I know you don't deserve this type of abuse
that I put you through.
But smiling
and kind
you give me
no mistake to find;
making me despise you
all that much more
for every perfect thing
you somehow manage to do.

Wowzers! I can see you in every word! Sometimes (especially at that magical time of month) I cast out lines like that! Well said!

It was just a thought which made them run. It was just an act that killed them.

I grew up and was part of that for 20 years with parents either starting to fight, in the middle of a fight, finishing a fight, or very briefely between fights. When I got married the wife began the same sequence lasting 14 years. Both episodes diminished my health.
