I cried today for the first time since you left

It came out of nowhere, yet everywhere

I got in the car and turned on the stereo

A normal day of normal ups and downs

Pulling out of the drive to go get medicine for the kids

At the intersection the light was red

It was dark, the streets lighting the night

 Heavy by Linkin Park started to play on the radio

Heavy...everything started to get so heavy

Holding it all in became almost impossible

I broke, everything in me pouring out

It's just a typical day, no different than any other're not here

Why does everything seem so much harder to carry

You're not here to hug me

To let me know that everything is okay

Time is precious and irreplaceable

And yet I can't help but want it to pass by quickly

To have you back in all the most selfish ways

But I can't, all I can do is wait

All I can do is try and hold on to everything

But right now, I'm going to cry

    Very emotive write. You never know when the emotions are going to attack you.

      Crying is the body's mechanism of returning your body back to correct chemical level after stress or shock has disrupted it . Tears are full of excesses that the body needs to be rid of . That's why we say a good cry is good for you .


      Thanks MANDI for another elegantly crafted poem ~ but with a sad sad subject ~ I'm sad thinking of you crying for your absent Lover. Men cry too ~ but we don't always admit it ! When ANGELA and I are parted ~ we both feel so so sad ~ but that ~ in essence ~ is the proof of True Love ! Thanks for caring & sharing ~ Friendly Hugs and a Hankie ! BRIAN Please read my Peanut Butter Poem ~ it's dedicated to you ~ Thanks B.
