"Don’t look at me in that tone of voice!" —Dorothy Parker
Write in a way that doesn’t even require your characters to speak for their reader to know the tone. Of course dialogue is absolutely helpful, but it isn’t necessary for your character to say, “I’m mad at you” when they can simply give their ex a seething look of hatred before storming out of the room.
Covey your characters emotions without stating it directly. Use body language, gestures.
"I wear my boots to bed, hang a cross up on the wall
To save me from a shallow grave that wants to take us all
Paint me in a corner but my colour comes back
Once you go black, you never go back”
