The Mooody Blues

What Got Into You

We had a beautiful day and then....

It's like a cannon went off and boom and a bang

My ears just rang

Like a switch clicked on

You turned into a real W I T C H

The littlest things sets you off

Calm down I repeat over and over

You accuse me of yelling at you

I did nothing of the kind

I am relaxed and it's you that don't know what you are doing

I asked you nicely to stop

I asked you to think

Lack of control

You face gets all red

You are like a good piece of wood that turned into splinters instead

Can you see the pain you cause?

I remind you this isn't the first time you acted this way

You respond in a rage

I am not going to argue

There is no point

You don't realize what you are doing

You can't be reasoned with

Don't waste my time

With all your energy go put it to good use

Go exercise and blow off some steam

You are too hot headed

Read between the lines

You find fault with a door that doesn't shut

Leave it alone

I will get it

There is no need to fuss

A light in the bathroom burned out

I will fix it

Your not listening and I am not going to waste my breath

So I go to continue what I was doing

You become loud and curse

Slamming things down with force

Hey cut that out

You complain some more

You say What sarcastly

I didn't do anything I swear

It slipped from my hands

You come right back with

Now your saying I lie

It is what it is

You can clearly see

I' m not the enemy and I 'm not going to fight

We will continue this another night

I can feel the tension in that poem! Wow. I have completely been there. On both ends.

You are great at creating mood, and choosing the right words to both sound good in the sentence and make your point. Thanks for sharing this with us, and have a wonderful weekend! Hopefully a peaceful one.

Kathryn Stratford Sometimes emotions spiral out of control.We have to exam them closely to see if they are neccessary or just blowing things out of proportion. Things have a way of working themselves out.We do a little give and take while she shouts.Thanx so much for reading and caring.

Wow, I'm speechless at how you can describe a situation so that the reader can actually visualize it. When I read the title, I thought of the singing group, "Moody Blues" - I did not see the 3 o's in it!

Voted up, useful and interesting, for I think anyone who reads this has experienced an event similar to what you share in this hub. Blessings,

Sparklea :)

Thanks dream on...wanted to let you know I received your recent email where you stated you have not received any emails from me. I sent you two emails a few days ago and answered the recent one, so you should have at least 3 from me. If not they may be in your spam/junk mail or accidentally deleted? I have sometimes hit the wrong key and deleted emails...then they may be in your deleted file?

Blessings, Sparklea :)

Moods change all the time it is hardly likely for one to be in the same mood all the time

DDE If we change our mood we change our view. We have to make a choice to be in a good mood and make life wonderful and help others or be in a bad mood and bring other people down and feel like we have been tossed around like a rag doll with every ache and pain.Thanx so much for sharing and may your day be good from start to finish.

Hi dream-on.

Impulsive. How that happens? We all handle escape from reality differently. One never argues with himself. ( Or only on special occasion.)

To turn next page - well - to hold one's peace. We do not force ourselves making decision - we choose.

Voted interesting .

Be of good cheer , enjoy your day.

Michael-Milec We can find so many reasons to be happy if not careful we pick the wrong reasons and let sadness turn us into a person who struggles and complains.I appreciate you views and insight.Thanx for reading my poem dealing with problems that I face in real life.May each day offer a new pleasure that we tap into with ease.Sharing life with others until it's time for us to leave.
