In the end it'll be okay, if it's not okay then it's not the end.


I just needed to cry
Let it all out
Nothing could stop it
Even though I didn’t want to
I wanted to pull back
To pull in all back inside
My lip trembled as my lens grew foggy
Head bent down, my chest was heavy in pain
“Are you sure you don’t want to share?”
You ask
I shake my head, trying to breathe as I shake again
Again, and again as more tears come
They won’t stop
You place your hand atop of my shoe in comfort
“Mind if I keep my hand here?”
My heart slows
Thank you, I’m sorry
I feel calmer now, but I’m still crying
You’re welcome, don’t apologize
That’s what friends are for
Friends
I feel another comforting hand on my back
More tears come
I shut my eyes and bite my tongue
Stop crying
It’s stupid, it’s pointless
Stop crying useless tears
I couldn’t, I can’t
They just keep falling
And I can’t stop them.
