I Remember Pain

I remember pain.
I know that terrible feeling.

There were days when crying
seemed like the best solution.

I’d bawl my little heart out,
focused on the disappointments
that held me prisoner.

Disinfect With Tears

Cry a river, shed your tears
if it will help ease the pain
from the heartache knotting up your insides.
Something has ripped you apart,
powerful enough to shut you down temporarily.
Shed your tears to disinfect the hurt.
It’s for your own good.
Let the healing begin.
