No Harm Done

No Harm Done Yesterday, I let myself out I’ve learnt to stop me But yesterday I couldn’t The rage and anger spilled The part of me I detest Spewed like volcanic lava Ran down my sides Tripped from mouth And you, as always Said nothing, no need Just got on with it Waited for the calm Acted like a summer breeze Smoothing my hair Brought tears to my eyes A wasted hour over an irrelevance Love is you. All I need is you Sorry. The lids back on and Tightly screwed. No harm done. David Cox 12/11/21

I admire the authenticity of losing control then expressing negative emotions in this piece, like a multitude of people I'm sure go through sometimes. The beauty here is that there is someone close by who caresses and pacifies the mind. A fine write Dave Cox! ...ab
