"He Said, She Said"

by Jeph Johnson

"I raised my voice, 

My tone disquieting, 

My heart, your choice, 

Induced anxiety 

When you told me 

You couldn't do this anymore."

"You yelled at me!

You know that's a trigger.

You've done it before,

And the sound still lingers.

That's why I can

Not love you anymore."
