Cry It Away

Cry It Away

Roar, scream, shout, loud 
This pain, just take it out, 
Sail your heart to December 
A month where you may remember 
That the joy of life partakes the soul 
Even on nights where we feel cold

Cry, sob, weep, wail —
Send your sufferings to a wave
There where they’ll surf away
Sucked inside the whirlpools ridgeway
Casted too, through winds of oblivion
Offered to the realm of this creation

Shrivel, lament, scorch, yell —
Your feelings, emotions, need to be felt
They need to break away into the night
While you look into the face of fear without fright
Opening your eyes when sleep commands
And reaching out to life with your own bare hands

Roar, scream, shout, loud —
This pain, just take it out,
Sail your heart till summer
A season where you may remember
That the joy of life partakes the soul 
Even on nights where we feel cold.

Prompt: to make a fuss. I do think that it’s important to release all of these feelings that kill us slowly from the inside… it’s important to cry, to shout and scream to the void, to write it down, to run like you’ve never run before, to mumble it to yourself like a secret… just give it away without rage, without hurting yourself and others, and come back with a light heart.
