Quotes for the Soul: Cry

Today I wanted to be left alone. I wanted to turn off my phone and just disconnect. I kept feeling waves of sadness I wanted to embrace. I wanted to provide myself the space to feel, to cry, to pray. So I put on some gospel music to let my spirit talk to God for me. I cried but didn’t feel better after. I felt like there was just so much more to pour out. I just couldn’t find the stillness to do so though my chest was on the brink of heaving. I decided to do some housekeeping then turned my phone back on. Thirty-four texts greeted me from friends and family about nothing in particular. I replied to everyone robotically. Even sending laughing emojis when a smile never formed. I don’t wish to talk to anyone, I simply don’t have the words. I just want to finally feel this bellowing cry that’s brimming so I can process and push forward. Sadness is a normal part of life. It’s healthy to cry, to feel. It’s when we force these feelings away that they become harmful to our existence and those around us.

“Some days are just bad days, that’s all. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is!.” – Dita Von Teese

I think we just like the idea of the other.
We check off each other’s boxes
but there was always something missing.
Something neither of us could put fingers on.
Maybe that something is magic and
the illusion of it keeps drawing us back in.
Only to find that it is still just an illusion.

You love the ugliest parts of me
When I’m an emotional wreck
When my words are unkind
When my being is disheveled
You love the ugliest parts of me still…

We can’t just dress this cake with
love and expect it to taste good if
the ingredients don’t include respect,
trust, loyalty, honesty, faith, kindness,
affection, communication, understanding…
Love isn’t enough to make us edible.
I want delectable. I want fulfilling.
I want a flavor I can devour.
I want much more than the icing on our cake.

Do I

Do I truly miss you or
Do I just miss the routine of you
Do I miss your voice or
Do I miss a sound that etched itself into
my auditory processes day after day
Do I miss us together or
Do I just miss the companionship
Do I miss you?
