At the end of the day

when I'm thoroughly pissed off

you see me and smile,

try to start a peppy conversation.

I brush you off

save you from a scowl

and give you a glare

Your innocent face

breaks

you immediately take the blame

you push at me

want to talk

I thrust you away

escape

let you wonder

I'm too heated up

to deal with you today

Later

you run at me

determined to

talk it out

placate me

you want to understand

I flip you off

and leave

Your face

illustrated in my mind

broken, confused, distraught

mentally

I tell you to deal

I'm too irate today.
