In Which A Remedy Is Very Strongly Suggested

A fit of rage can happen in a snap,
When someone says the wrong thing, when a look
Makes you feel dumb or small, when all the crap
A day might offer happens, when you cook
As though the lid's too tight and pressure's built
Beyond what you can take, when you're about
To scream and yell, or tear your hair from guilt
Or a misunderstanding, when the shout
You need so to release cannot be heard,
When tears could come but shouldn't, when a cry
Would only make thinks worse, when vision's blurred
By angry tears or just exhaustion, I
Am there with you; Remember and take heart
It doesn't mean a thing that we're apart.


  1. That pretty much sums up how I'd been feeling for the past few weeks. Another fantastic sonnet - I don't know how you do it. Whoever you wrote that for is a lucky person to have a friend like you and I feel for them also.

  2. Bad day working on the fence??? :)

  3. Aw, thanks ((Kate)) that's a beautiful one…

  4. Good, good, good, because you know who it was for ^_^

  5. Krissy, no, fine day on the fence (though my body hates me today). Someone else had a bad day and I was trying to cheer him up. Think I succeeded, too. It's SO AWESOME to be able to do that, let me tell you!

  6. Richard, it was for someone special, but I wanted it to be for everyone, too, because we all have days like that, don't we? We gotta take care of each other!
