Can't Stay Angry For the Life of Me

It burns hot,bright, and there is passion.
There is fire
and the earth quakes.
And I bet I'm not that pretty
when I'm mad.
Then as the eye in a storm
the winds subside
and all is calm.
And it doesn't come back.
There is no other side to my hurricane.
No aftershock.
No debris from my tornado.
It melts and I don't hold contempt.
Your face hasn't the effect I thought it would.
You make it out with your life
and I never have the chance
to do something I will regret.
Can't stay angry for the life of me.
