You say I'm moody,
that my emotions take over
and swing from side to side
like a pendulum.


You are right;
when it comes to you,
I feel deeply,
but that's not a bad thing.


That just means
that my love is
as strong as my hate.


And when I lash out in anger,
it is because you hurt me
to the core of my heart.


But there comes a point
when your words, while truthful,
become too painful to hear
on a daily basis.


And that is today,
that is when I have to walk away
because my heart can't take anymore.
