Do you sometimes sit by yourself
Alone in the nakedness of your thoughts
To the sound of your beating heart
In the comfort of your aloneness
Through all the organised chaos that is your life,
Do you sometimes want to run around screaming
Declaring your love for a complete stranger because you feel like it
Singing away the blues of your depression
Rejoicing at the sight of your hopelessness
Acknowledging the helplessness of your strength,
and then cry?
Do you want to cry?
I am crying.
There is no reason. There is no cause.
I just sit here and cry.
There is a swelling in my heart
A heaving of my chest
An instability in my touch
A quickening of the beats that make up a heartbeat.
I feel human
I feel real
There is blood, water, air, life
They flow inside me
My senses are disarmed
My pride is lost
My being is overcome
and then i cry.
I smile as i cry.
There is a music in the distance that wills me on
That wills me to scream
That calls me to let go.
Do you know that feeling?
I feel it now.
It is empowering
Relieving, comforting, soothing
Not for the failures of my days
Not for burdens that await my shoulder’s support
Not for the prospects of futures unknown
Not for the great unknown unknowns.
None of that.
I cry because i can. Because i want to
My spirit needs it. My self need it.
I need it.
I need to cry.
Yes, i cry.
