A Tiny Realization  

I have to learn, myself, how to complain,
Something I dread,
Before I can be more sensitive to your feelings
And soften what I've said.

Ahh but how significant and life changing can the smallest realisation mean!!!
The something you dread is upsetting as it proves how much this process means to you. As long as we keep striving to improve, surely that's positive steps indeed.
Interesting read

'He died, and my self came pouring out
Like a pitcher finally tilted.

a line from another poem of yours

that's what it has been this week for many people
with the sun opposite the full moon... both squared to mars on one side
and at a certain time of day, pisces on the other...
a grand cross...
many people's pitchers spilling..
revealing unexpressed feelings

a friend who has never given me a traffic warning in her entire life..
called to say 'don't drive today... everyone is angry!'

Expression is the best healer ..most times we are surprised that we actually feel better when we say what we mean instead of always sugar coating our feelings ..your poem is deeply human. -Eileen

learning to express, is a good beginning, I agree. Eventually, maybe I can move toward tempering more. Right now when I try to 'temper' i realize I haven't accomplished the basis for it all: Treating myself as nicely as I want to treat others. So, I'm out to rectify this. Wish me luck.
