She's About to Blow!

Warn You Now

I might as well warn you now

Stay the hell away from me

I'm not sure that I can take much more

Much like a geyser building steam

I'm about to blow my flippin' top!

I'm always wrong anyway

And someone else always does it better

But I no longer give a damn

I'm here, can't you see

Or do I have to shout it?

Take me, leave me

Love me, hate me

But I'm about all that I can be right now

And my stresses are no less important than your own

Besides, who you need and what you need

Always seems to change with the wind

So if you're needing something more

Go ahead and walk out that door

Don't let it hit you in that big inflated ego

Shan... I knew we were close.. but when did you sneak into me head? lol... no honestly, I can soooooo relate to this and you did it so passionately and so raw... I love it! I have to say... you seem to have fallen out of the box? lol

I hit every button... even justified funny this time :D ... though I suppose it's not :-(

Haha, Cat, yo always say I'm in your head. Maybe you're the one in mine, eh? Did ya think about that one? :-p

Yeah, passionate and raw? Maybe just 'cause I was a wee bit ticked off. Hahaha

Uh, what box am I supposed to have fallen out of, may I ask?

If it's funny, glad to make you laugh. Wasn't necessarily going for funny with this one though, but I can see it. Just goes to show, humor in everything. :D

I offered Cat the use of my friend, Louie. He's a slugger (hint, hint) and will take care of any problems. LOL! He's dependable! He's more than happy to volunteer to help you relief stress! LOL! I'm kidding! I had to blow of some steam, too, recently. Voted it up!

Okay shan... maybe we were not just literally separated at birth, but maybe physically too, like Siamese twins? lol... you know... we share some of the same brain? lol... that would explain the square side of my head.. lol.

Uh... you know "Think outside the box"... I'm saying you not only thought outside... you fell out the damn thing... lol!

You didn't make me laugh... really, there were elements shan, you have to agree! Besides... it's coming from you and I think I understand many of your problems... lol....

In regards to that sad looking writinglover, I've offered to beat people with my shoes for her and she's offered me her bat... lol!

Oh... in't she cute? lol

Kind of something, like that, to be honest. :)


shanmarie profile image

shanmarie 3 years ago from Texas Author

Haha...Oh, that box! Duh! Hahaha Apparently I fell so far out of it, I totally let the reference go over my head!

Yes, I see the elements, I do. :D

As for you two violent girls, I love you anyway. Besides, bats and shoes when a top is blowing may not be the best idea. ;)

Cantuhearmescream 3 years ago from New York

Lol... hey, in your defense Shan... nobody says fell out of the box, so I can't blame you for having a hard time following my weirdo talk! lol

I'm really not a violent person and there really are not weapons in my house, no sharp things and the walls are padded :D

And SHAN!!! You know how GREAT I think YOU ARE!!! :D


shanmarie profile image

shanmarie 3 years ago from Texas Author

Hehe, writinglover, just a bit. ;)


shanmarie profile image

shanmarie 3 years ago from Texas Author

Gee, thanks, Cat. You're pretty great yourself. :D Padded walls are the best, aren't they? They just mean the rest of the world is abnormal. ;)

I worry about all that angst. But then I say hooray. She gets to let it all hang out in her writing with great fans that adore her. I suppose I just love you girl. All I can be is here, and let you know that.

(as a further note- Move on quicker it is more fun)

P.S. Cat, did I ever claim to be in the box? Don't think I ever claimed to be sane either. hehe haha hoho I'm a toad outside a box!

"Think as I think," said a man,

"Or you are abominably wicked;

You are a toad."

And after I had thought of it,

I said, "I will, then, be a toad."

It's such a good thing that you followed that with a short little ditty of sorts and even cited it.... you might want to be careful, you never know who's watching :D lol (They already know I'm cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs here, but I think you're still safe.... lol)


shanmarie profile image

shanmarie 3 years ago from Texas Author

LMAO. . .so, the "short little ditty" helped clarify that I didn't pull toad out of my rear and claim to be one? That what you're saying?


Cantuhearmescream profile image

Cantuhearmescream 3 years ago from New York

Yeah, that's exactly what I'm saying... lol (and I caught that... you have no idea what I'm talking about... but something good just entered your life and I caught it!) :D

I say, get yourself a nice bowling ball and throw that sucker down that lane! :-)

Somehow, breaking up always brings this song to my mind:

"Make It Easy On Yourself" - Music by Burt Bacharach, played & sung by himself with Dionne Warwick, 1996. http://youtu.be/epZPgEb9TP4

Might as well laugh, huh? I just listened to that song. It is so good. ( You probably know that Dionne Warwick was Whitney Houston's aunt. )
