Cold War

Tears threaten to fall

Vibrations from your

Banshee screams

Knock them over

And they spill out.

Heat flushes in my cheeks

Destroying my mind

With every bludgeoning word

I speak my reasoning

And you dodge,

Counter with

Your lies.

They hit me

Between my eyes.

The impact

Sends me stumbling

Into silence

Marking the end of our

One-sided discussion.
