Displaced Sadness

When I was yelling and screaming,
What I really wanted to do,
What I couldn't let myself do,
Was cry.
I just wanted things to be
From how they were at that moment.
A bunch of little disappointments
Suddenly all added up together
And were too much for me.
So it was either cry
And travel through the disappointment
Or push it away
And start a fight instead.
