Favorite Quote:
The hardest thing to do is watch the one you love, love someone else.

The air around cracks with hatred between us
Our voices rise as surrounding sounds dim
Harsh words cut through me equal to mine
My only thought is to hurt you as you've hurt me
Last words shouted, loudest yet, followed by silence
Shaking with anger and fear, with a reckless mind
Hatred courses through me, turning me dangerous
Then time to think brings regret, sorrow, and shame
Tears flood my eyes as I see your face; angry, hurt
"This is my fault" my mind repeats again and again
Your pain is of my doing,I did this, I hurt you
To reach for you means to make amends
As you jerk away I flinch, then my heart breaks
Now filled with despair, only waiting for what might come
...A single touch
Soft, tender, shocking with such emotions
Forgiveness, relief, hope, love
Responding with another touch, no more is said
Peace comes for a time

The author's comments:
This actually happened, although it is exaggerated a little, at a high school soccer game I was at with my boyfriend. I was talking to my best friend, whom my boyfriend used to dislike very much because my friend is a guy, and my boyfriend got jealous and we fought. I wrote this just to get my feelings out.
