It is that one moment.
That sardonic comment.
The one that irks and holds,
Instantly in the heart.

It may not have been meant
Badly at all. In fact,
It may have been genuine,
But it sparks a hot fire.

What determines you, then,
Is what you do with it
Will you sizzle and blow,
Or can you withdraw in peace?
