    i wanna cry
    until my insides are dry
    i wanna scream
    until my lungs pop it seams
    i wanna yell
    not caring who they tell

    i wanna run

    yet you can't
    Run
    from
    yourself

    holding my shoulder tight
    rocking to and forth
    crying into the night
    until my insides are dry
    screaming to the top of my lungs
    until i can scream no more
    sleep
    is now
    slowly taking a hold of me

    feel the peace
    thankful for the peace

    it is said
    that

    one much go on
    and face the rise of the sun
    and rest with the setting dawn
    that
    one much go on

    to live with out regret
    and always do your best
    and pass on with a smile
    remembering the love ones
    that is no longer
    amongst us
    with
    kindness
    with
    pure thoughts
    and i do

    yet right now
    all i wanna do is
    sit in a corner
    and just
    hold my shoulder
    rocking back and forth
    and
    just
    cry

    but that is just how i am feeling now
    tomorrow i will face the sunrise

    You just go ahead and feel, sister. The emotions come and go in waves. And yes, that sunrise does come again, to greet you, with care and love. Hugs to you.

    Blue, ...
    yes of course you will at times want to scream, and shout and cry until it hurts...and it's okay to let it out...and move on with your life. You went beyond and above...so you have much to smile about.

    Deliciously beautiful my sister. I'm a good friend of Dior's and I was told that you are a very prolific writer so i'm here to pay my respects. Looking forward to more of your beauty. God bless.
