Sometimes I feel like you
Are treating me like her,
And we both know what happened to her.
But I am strong.
I won’t melt into a puddle
Of tears as she did.
I stand my ground like
A little oak tree with my limbs
Reaching for the sky—
Like my imagination,
Like my intrepid poetry
Undaunted by the din
Of your angry voice,
Words spoken through clenched teeth.
I saw the hurt in her eyes
You didn’t see, or maybe you just didn’t care?
When you yell at ME
I flee instead to the sanctuary 
Of my quiet, softly lit room,
To my wide screen T.V.
With movies that cheer me.

Sometimes you push me too far
And my patient Taurus nature
Explodes into an angry rage I can’t control.
And I think it is then
That you realize you
Have gone too far and
I become quiet in fear I won’t keep the cap
On that angry explosion.
I try to express my inner
Most feelings through poetry
To keep my balance—
Balance in our lives,
And sometimes I succeed.

    Dear Connie, I'm glad you retreat to poetry when someone treats you this way. It's a good catharsis. People who evoke anger this way are often expressing misplaced rage. Likely, it wasn't something you said that caused this person to explode. When "pushed too far," many of us are capable of rage we never knew we had. I am one of "the ladies who understand." Love, Carolyn

    Connie my sweet lil' friend this write so true to heart was amazing. So many think because we are gentle tat they can treat us so badly at times but sometimes we have to show them we are strong when treated so wrong. Many women know of what you speak of lil' one and I'm so glad your poetry is a safe haven of sorts as is with many of us.God Bless and take care.

    Well done Connie!!! You expressed these sentiments with an attitude of calm and determination, all in one. In life silence can be used as a very valid weapon, but there are times when we have to vent our feelings. Glad that poetry comes so handy to you in such instances. Take care. // paul

    Hi Connie, This is a poignant poem that touches a raw nerve of the human condition as it exists, as it really is. Nicely done. Peace seems to be illusive. It is good you have a strong will to write, soft words with sound merit, to capture and portray the truth. Keep up the good work. Take care. Earl

    yes, dear Connie, I for one understand this. Your poem is heartfelt and poignant. I have your Taurus in my moon and always I can relate so well to your emotions. A truer friend and kinder woman than you would be rare! Luv, Andrea

    Words coming from the depths of hearts always create touching effect dear friend Connie. A very touching write where hard truths float to show the bubbles of anger and concern which always come out from the mind. Thank you for your kind comment on my new Poem. Love and best wishes always...Ravindra K Kapoor
