Anger and rage burn,
burn inside, eating away at the senses
until common sense is all but forgotten
and flames ignite the pain of hurt feelings
as the thoughts invade
and words cut deeper than any knife.
as no words cut even deeper
irritating raw senses
like salt on an open wound
as thoughts imagine without evidence
the hand that embraced love
is holding another heart.
Yet senses calm in the serenity of time
and unvoiced thoughts wither in a kiss
the strength that is love
that survives disagreement.
