I would go straight to the gym and let loose
on the punching bag
grunting and sweating and swinging my way
to a more contented heart
knowing that with each aggressive hit of my fist
I was getting over the person who hurt me.
But with you
my body rejects the need for anger
it doesn't want to fight any more battles
after emerging from this war
that I've waged
My entire being needs to heal
before I can get back to feeling
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
