Emotional Eruptions

every time i think 
we are cool
you say the meanest things
you make my cry out
in classic blues
of a busted heart

you must know and time
my change of attitude
when you are nice to me
with a drop of nastiness
to make me aware
of your long standing
resentment you disguised
so well in you peace offerings

oh you are so clever
waiting for me to complain 
about things you know i hate
while pretending to be unaware
of things i find annoying

but that's okay
i'll keep it to myself
pretend i didn't notice
as you push buttons
just to get a rise out of me
it didn't work this time
my time has been set

sustaining blows 
from your tongue, sharp
as a two edge sword
has me wondering
if this is all life has to offer
in love and war
straight forward into the core 
of my heart
still seeping blood
from your last blow

I'm pinned to the wall
in this prison 
you have carved for me

the moment my feet
hit the sand
rising from the raging
sea of emotions
you create in me
to destroy my happiness
and sap my joy
has begun to swallow
me whole

here you come again and again
with the those big feet
staring me in the face
just before i'm slam backyard
into another wave of tsunami 
like emotions

stay away from me
can you at least allow my heart
to recuperate
for a least a moment
from the earthquakes
shifting in my bones

give me just a moment of peace
from the red hot lava
boiling in my veins

I'm trying hard not to erupt
spewing nasty magna 
all over your face
then watching 
you melt like the wicked witch
from the wizard of oz

it does me no good
to act like a fool
while you act like
a victim of circumstance
attempting to blind
the eyes and minds
of outsiders
wondering saying
