When The Dam Breaks

When the dam breaks

And your walls come down

And the tears flow in torrents

And there’s no one around

Allow them to cascade

Down your cheeks

Don’t stifle the flow

Don’t think yourself weak

Know that you’re cleansing

Releasing – just breathe

All those pent up feelings

Simply decided to leave

Washing away the frustration

The hurts that you may have endured

Taking with them the toxins

As you surrender and purge

So cry it all out

And then cry some more

Don’t withhold one drop

Let that salt water pour

And when you’re done

You’ll feel so much lighter

Exhausted but at peace

You don’t have to fight it

Then nurture yourself

Snuggle yourself up

And show yourself

Some affection and love.
