Call it concern
you  say
and throw frowns at me
like small darts
I try to duck and avoid.

Call it consternation
you say
and send dire thoughts to me
like letters sent
and forgotton.

Call it accusation
you glare
and now we're getting somewhere
now I know you telling me
whats really going on
as I shift
to avoid the accustations screaming at me like bullets,
grazing my shoulder
leaving burning sensations on my flank.

Call it...
and you pause
and I know
I know
we;ve finally got there
and i help you out
and I shout out
CALL IT ANGER...
call it  anger
because thats what it is
no pretence
just anger pure and hot.

You fume and boil
still trying not to let it out
but its anger
and there is no stopping sometimes
is there?

It explodes from you
in violence
in hatred
in despair
and this time
I cant get out of the way
and I dont really want to.

Very powerful.  This one had me thinking.  Sometimes you do have to confront angry feelings with some of your own.

I enjoyed this one.

This is an excellent write!  It is moving and it is written from the heart.  It goes very deep.  Thank you for sharing it!
