Always seems to be something at your place Addie. It is good that you are helpful for your neighbors.

There are 42 units in this building. You are right. Always something. We all listen to where the ambulance is going. Although at around 4 p.m. we know it is going up the highway right next to the building. Always a crash every day.

Tired, semi-sleep deprived, cold,
bored and I can't go to bed yet.
The tail end of work seriously irked me.
The stupidity of people
on the drive home seriously irked me
("let me pull out in front of you
on an icey road
and then just stop there."
"Hey, look at me. I'm racing
all the other cars in the snow
and ice
and I'm probably going to get someone killed.
Aren't I so cool.")
/growl
/bare teeth
/extend claws

I'm in a mood
where if you pointed your finger
in my face
I'd probably bite it,
and then when you pulled away in surprise
I'd yell at you for being stupid
enough
to point your finger in the face
of someone that is clearly in no mood
to be provoked.
And then I might just stomp on your foot
to punctuate my outburst.

It's a good thing
I don't have to go anywhere tonight
and that I can turn the ringer off
on mine and the hubby's phones.
It's a good thing
I can just curl up in a blanket
and glare at random objects
until bedtime.
It's a good thing
the cat knows
to just lay quietly at my feet and purr
and hubby knows
to just sit quietly next to me,
just close enough that I can feel him
there, but not quite touching.
If those two
keep going as they are,
I might just run out of things to vent
about.

It wasn't meant to be a poem. I wrote it out and as I was reading it to see if I missed punctuation or had obvious spelling errors and I could just see the line breaks, hear the rythm of it all. It was all sort of sing-songy in my head. I don't think I've ever accidentally written a poem before.

Hey, I am not arguing. It is a poem. And I have all my fingers curled inside my palm.

I too have no patience with stupidity. I would rather deal all day long with a mentally challenged person that someone who is just stupid by their own choice. The mentally challenged one has a reason for his condition.

I'm calm now BT. All is safe again. Question all you want. It's a poem to me and apparently what I needed to write because I felt much better afterward.

Taxlady, thank you for the hugs. :)

That's why the title of this thread is "Venting".

writing their feelings down helps a lot of people, pag. in fact it's taught as a coping tool in cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapies.

i've never done it, though. it can also be considered evidence...
