Anger Management and My Place of Peace

In the lull of my fake battles
Tears of laughter changing into tears shame
As I see bloggers clawing at each other
Throwing care into the eye of storm

Her space violated
Her words knotted in hurt; sweet words into poison
Emotionally emptying – openly?
Anger!!!!!! Seething anger

Pain and misery rolled into a post
To orchestrate such fury would be hard

His respect in question
His words defiantly confident; perceptive words into daggers
Systematically querying – smugly?
Denial!!!! Composed denial

Shifting the onus of proof into a post
To admit to such a charge would be folly


Sides are chosen by the spectators

She said- being one
He said -being the other
The fence is wide for many are astride as
Others jump off to either side

Been away a while, a short while
To find my place of peace
Strewn with anger and bloated with rage
Clueless as to how it all began

All I want is my place of peace.

Wow a poem from you - Thank you. It is beautiful.

Awww Blue, when you put it like that.. makes me feel sad.

Can I sit with you in your place of peace?

Hi there. Now, as you can see, this place has grown, and in growth, there has to be some teething problems as the reality of blogging in a community hits the place.

Sparks have and will continue to fly, as people vent and rave. Its just sad that it had to involve two very respectable bloggers.

The truth is out there.

Poem!! I want more Blue.

I'm really hoping this can all be sorted out soon, altho I'm fresh out of ideas on how that can be done. The prospect of having new allegations every week is disturbing.

And yes that fence is so wide its a side by itself

Thank you Ladies & Sammie,

@Nick- Look at all these lovely ladies on my blog... I love them all!!! Jealous???
I am sure there are more coming.
@Ladies- I have truly missed being here. I spent many nights waiting/anticipating my come back.
All of you have been a part of my place of peace and I thank you.

Let us all work towards rebuilding our past strengths; accepting each other.. sensitive to feelings in the attempt to create an all encompassing community of friends.
The reason I wrote this piece was not to take sides but to show the importance of each bloggers feeling, point of view and place in our community.
I have extended a peace pact on Pois comments and wish it is taken up.
Yours,

Blue.
