“Belligerent”

Heated scenarios, heated words,

Heated discussions, nouns and verbs,

Heated temperaments, heated expressions,

Heated results, born of heated intentions.

Hot potato, submerged in hot topics,

Hot tempered folk, defying all logic,

Hot off the press… “Friends Make Amends”,

Now that we’ve cooled off, we’re Besties again.

Have you ever had a disagreement with someone you’re close with, and it turned nasty? You start exchanging verbal blows as you both get more and more defensive, and before you know it, you’re in the aftermath of huge fallout, something you never envisioned you’d ever experience with this friend, partner or significant other!

In most cases both parties have acted irrationally, it came out of the blue and erupted in a feverish volcano of emotional angst. Occasionally there are tell tale signs to its arrival, or there may have been a third party who played composer and conductor to this hurtful symphony.

Left unchecked, people can sever relationships with many or all of their close friends and loved ones, due to these explosive events. It’s advisable to be cautious how we act and respond in the heat of the moment, something easier said than done, especially if alcohol or drugs play a part, giving us twisted perceptions and heightened emotions.

Thankfully, the strongest and most genuine bonds will usually be mended quickly, as the love outweighs any hurt feelings. Remember though, do not react to hearsay, get the facts, speak, listen, remain respectful, protect that which you love and loves you back.

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
