Losing Touch with Sanity

Sometimes,
I want to let my guard down,
to break down and cry.

I wish
that I could scream
and weep
without people to watch.

I want my privacy,
I want my sanity.

Sometimes,
I want to let myself go,
to break down and cry.

Then I remember
that if I do,
I might lose touch
with the good I see each day,
that I won't wake up
feeling better,
like I always do
when I want to let myself go,
to break down and cry.


The author's comments:
I wrote this (and I know it sounds depressing) because sometimes, I want to be crazy, to let myself go, to break down and cry. I have to remind myself that it doesn't help, I need an anchor to hold on to when I feel like the sea will carry me to the storms.
