Seldomly, I cry

Seldomly she said
Seldomly I cry
Why?
Because, because
Crying shows how weak I am
Never!
Crying is theraputic
It is a release
could she?
Would she?
Was crying really ok?
Her friend motioned to her
Just let it go
Dont worry!
Fear not!
Crying, everyone should do it!
Its healing!
She sat staring into her coffee mug
Wondering, pondering
Was this really true?
Should she just let go?
It was seldomly that she did
She never wanted to be percieved as weak
but maybe, maybe
she could now, just this once!

I wrote this poem in relationship to how I feel at the moment. I am feeling as if I shouldnt be so weak, I shouldnt cry, I shouldnt let my guard down. I suppose its ok though, right? Its ok not to be ok?

  1. I can sympathise with that. I hate to allow myself to cry, I worry that once I give in to it, it will turn into an unending flood of sorrow. I think it is better to cry a little and release the pressure than to either let it build up or become emotionally numb. A well-worded poem.
