I’ve been strong too long. I just can’t do it anymore. I’ve kept the tears away. Dulled the emotions. Drown them in never slowing down. But it’s all just too much. The raging noise inside me has bubbled up and overflowed. The hot tears cannot be contained. The pressure against my head…against my ears…trying to block it all out. Just for a minute. Just until I can catch my breath.
