    When Is It Enough

    Just called the wonderful, car breaking, unemployed X and told him I have two doctor appointments on Monday that I cannot miss. I think that's plenty of notice and hopefully enough time to fix my car. I also informed him that I will need $75 for these appointments as that is the...

    Just Need To Get All This Out

    all these emotions...I need to have a good cry and get it all out.  I'm so used to bottling everything up and moving on that I haven't jsut stopped and let it out.  I had a bad day and I could really use a good cry.

    Boo Hoo

    I am the emotional one. The one who feels deeply and cries easily. I can watch someone else cry - someone that I don't even know...and my eyes fill with tears. But for the last several months at least - there have been no significant tears. I have had reasons to cry. I have...

    I Do

    But it's something I've never been able to do....  Possibly that may change one day, but for now, it's a tool I just don't have.

    I Haven't In So Long...

    That's generally the main excuse why I watch sad movies, so I can cry and have a reason, right there in front of me. Otherwise, it's tough for me to do so. Unless I get so angry, that tears are my only release valve.

    Embarrassed to Admit It

    It would probably do a world of good,but am embarrassed to admit it,and am afraid my landlords and their kids would hear.

    I Really Do Need A Good Cry

    I'm sitting in the office right now, trying to get through the day, doing simple routine stuff, music is screaming in my ears, but my mind is somewhere else. And I have no idea where. Because if I'd known, maybe it'd be easier to understand why I'm so distracted and want to cry...

    I Really Need to But...

    I am so depressed I just need to cry my heart out, I know it will make me feel a little better afterwards. The trouble is I am on Prozac which at its best only makes me feel numb and I just can't cry! It's like all the tears are trapped behind my eyes but just wont come. I hate...

    So Badly...

    I can feel it somewhere in the back of my throat.  But I cant do it.  I want to so badly.  I have so many reasons to.  But my body doesn't want to.  The sad thing about it....it makes me MORE depressed that I cant cry when i am depressed.  I don't...

    The Cleansing

    I feel like having a good cry. A mighty cry. A cry that would wash out all that troubles me... This is the beginning of a poem I wrote a few years ago.  Although Im still not comfortable crying in front of others, I dont feel terrible if I have to excuse myself and...

    Why is it so hard to come by?  Why does it resist so strongly when I need it most?

    Not Sure I Can Explain It

    Few people have ever actually seen me cry.  JD and I have dated for a year...and I think he has seen it once.  And that wasnt by choice...I lost control. Somewhere in my past I descided that I should be "tough"; that i shouldnt burden others with my...

    There's no safe place for me to have it There are no loving arms to cradle me No soothing voice to comfort me Only those who will ask what's wrong and not stick around for the answer Only those who will think the tears on my face are evidence of sanity's slippage I need a...

    I can't really cry properly... My eyes have tears in them most of the time but I can't really cry. Sometimes some of the tears do tickle down my face but not much. I really do just want to cry but at th same time I don't. I can't seem to be able to do it anyway even when I really...

    I Feel Weird Lately

    I feel like crying. For some reasons... But I still can't. It's there, in my stomach, caught. I don't know why it's so difficult to let it go. I'm alone right now, and even I can't. If you saw me, you wouldn't even say I need a good sob. Each time I need something it's the same...

    Between what I feel and what I let go. I'm in control, I'm what I am, and friends are rare. I prefer to be seen as a "cold *****", what rather makes me laugh in fact. But I admit I'd need a good cry. sometimes.
