anger: bold as love

Anger! He smiles
Towering in shiny metallic purple armour
Queen jealousy envy waits behind him
Her firey green gown sneers at the grassy ground
Blue are the life-giving waters taken for granted
They quietly understand

I think around noon today, I realized that I was no longer in a bad mood. I think after the anger subsided around Friday night, exhaustion settled in over it.

So, this is more a thank you. To a friend who always makes me laugh and reminds me that I’m human. And to a friend who deals with my absolute insanity…

I couldn’t be luckier if I tried.


temper, temper

That’s pretty much the only way to describe my day.

On the irony side, my friend and I were split up into two separate meetings, and we somehow how had the exact same meltdown at the exact same time.

Then, I spent the rest of the day annoyed with myself that I had lost my temper. The whole rest of the day.  I was doing so well, too. But they push. And push and push.

"You seem very angry"

That’s what she said to me.

And yesterday, when I was asked “what are your emotions?”, I replied, “Anger.”

“Anything else.”

“Anger. That about covers it.”

How DO YOU THINK I FEEL? I just spent four hours packing up the entire work supplies of one of my best friends. I just had to say goodbye to a man who has two children under the age of 2. I just had to hug a man who has been a part of this community for 27 years.

So, yes, I am angry. Very angry. There’s no “seem” about it.

And to say that I shouldn’t feel that way is absolutely absurd. You can’t have seen what I have seen and have had the conversations I have had and not be absolutely angry.
