"Get mad, then get over it."
~ Colin Powell ~

Irritability, suspicion, guardedness, resentment, blame- 
these are the fruit of inner mind-games. 
Rarely based in reality, 
they are the result of 
a vicious thunderstorm of thoughts.
And unspoken, they form and build like massive cumulus clouds.
When the rain finally pours, confession style, 
Or blustery like a hurricane,
Then there is calm...
The calm that comes after the storm. 

I admit to the turbulence of the stories in my head.
