A good cry

I’m calling out for help

Friends, family

Begging almost

I don’t know how to get through

I feel it coming

Washing up

Tears trickle down my cheeks

Voice starts to go

End my call

I can understand

Bitter taste

Need to carry on

Then

It floods

Wailing like a child scorned

The only friend I have

That consoles me

The hypocrite

Is man’s best friend

That this bastard cannot keep

I’m just going to give her away

Because she’s too much….

.

In my time of need

She is there

I cry

I cry

I cry

Hysterically

Breakdown finally hits

Will I go on?

Have I got a choice?

Things look bad

They always do

Going through bad times?

Have a good cry

  1. The tears, for me, don’t “solve” anything…. but they can feel so good. To let the bad thoughts wash out through my tear ducts. I always feel somehow better afterwards. Even though I look like shit LOL. Still. I’m a crier. I was raised in a home where we were not allowed to show emotion, so as an adult, I just let it all out. I don’t care if I’m walking through the grocery store crying. It is what it is. Like you say… a good cry.
