"You're So Cute When You're Angry"

October 12, 2020


he says, 
as fiery words spew out of my mouth
and snot bubbles at my nose like magma. 

Defenseless, he will do anything to dodge my questions,
so the poor boy resorts to flattering me at my ugliest moment.

I stare at his pimpled face, 
smug smirk slithering into a smile, 
he believes he has the upper hand.

But the silence confirms what I have always known, 
that at any given moment
I can free myself from this,
and wander the world with wonder, 
etching my name into the stars
as the promise of my dreams 
burns my fingertips a cool pink. 

So I wipe away the last tear, 
say a pleasant thank you, 
and close the door behind me. 

I have so much beautiful time.

    Ugh, this type of argument would be terrible! I love the way you describe your anger, but then the dramatic twist towards happiness. I also like how you combined reality with a real experience, like etching your name on the stars. That sound so beautiful! Great job!

    YESSS! ugh I hate it when people try to patronize their way out of an argument. I love this, especially the ending.
