Yelling

Resist the temptation to yell
as this expression gets under my skin;
I shudder and my soul is disturbed.

Turn your face into anger and if you must
slap me with all the fury of violence
punish me with a week of unrelenting silence
or leave me alone so very much insecure
but I ask you not to yell
My soul does not like yelling

My soul does not like yelling as truthfull as symbolic.. looking simple, for some maybe not sophisticated, yet the piece of genuine feel streamed into poetry, at its best!
This isn't bad. The only serious reservation I would have is the fact that yelling could also be deemed as violent. I'd probably give this 4/10. Scott.
