Anger So Sweetly (Revised) - Poem by Linda Ori

Why do I let you get to me?
I don't understand what you say -
One minute you're glad
The next one you're mad
I feel like I'm treading thin ice;

You constantly throw me off balance,
I hold my affection in check -
And then in a minute
You smile, and you win it
I feel like I'm losing my mind;

Why do you make me so angry?
Why do I feel so uptight?
I so want to please you
Instead I just tease you
And then we end up in a fight;

So why don't we just change the game plan,
Agree to be lovers instead -
And when there's an issue
We'll just grab the tissue
And make anger so sweetly in bed!

For my special friend - 'THANK YOU'

    Linda, it's such a joy to read a good poem written with maturity by someone with maturity. 'Online' is being swamped by young girls who can' t or won't get their hands out of their panties, and write accordingly. Yish! (Report) Reply

    Turmoil and turbulence on the seas of emotion. I like it a bit steadier than this, but the solution is perfect for smoothing troubled waters. More very tightly focussed and poetic writing Linda. x (Report) Reply
