Crying Time is Cleansing Time

Tonight I Wanna Cry
(Monty Powell/Keith Urban)

Alone in this house again tonight
I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
The way that it was and could have been surrounds me
I'll never get over you walkin' away

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let got of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry

Would it help if I turned a sad song on
"All By Myself" would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better
But I'll never get over you by hidin' this way

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let got of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry


Sometimes, life just hurts. Lost loves, lost dreams, failed goals and out of control emotions.

Sometimes, having a friend just is not enough. That caring shoulder and unbiased opinion that can help guide you through the trauma of a painful day is just not enough.

Sometimes, when it all hurts, the memories of loves past, the shattered dreams, the broken hopes, the bitter cold loneliness... All drifting around me like snowflakes. Falling around me, freezing me in a place in time that I do not want to be in. Stuck here, alone, in a blizzard of emotions.......

Its these times when I know I have had enough.
Its Time.
Its time to let my feelings show,
Its time to lose my self control.
Its time to let the facade of strength crumble down.
Its time to let the walls that protect me come crashing to the ground all around me.
Its time to quit hiding and start being.

But first.

Its time to let my tears wash away yesterday. Tears are such cleansing little salty droplets of water. My tears this night are not bitter tears at all. They are pure and natural tears that are cleansing my mind, my heart, my very soul. Tomorrow, when I awake, I will awake a new man. One once again with purpose. One with a reason for breathing. One who once again believes in love and romance and caring and sharing and being that wonderful friend to so many people. Tomorrow I will be your friend. Tomorrow I will once again dry your tears and make you smile. Tonight? I think tonight I shall be my friend. I shall hug myself close, lose the inhibitions, and let the cleansing tears fall.

I am not dead yet

And sometimes having that friend is just enough. Thank you my friend. I leave you with one of my favorite quotes...

"Crying washes the bitterness out of your soul to make room for the Joy."

I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

It's time to let some of it go.
Let your tears wash away those visions of the past, so you can look to the future.

Most people are other people... FUCKING CHARACTER LIMIT!!! ~Oscar Wilde

"Tears are such cleansing little salty droplets of water."

Tears are meant to cleanse the soul. I hope your soul feels lighter now...

Sometimes, just when you think you can not shed another tear, the dam will break. Thats the good cry. the one that cleanses the deepest.

Ok, now that's just plain wrong.

Don't use the damn lime green speedo as a hanky!

FFS, bard!! You know better than that.

*shakes head*

And to think I was going to buy you a new banana hammock, too!

A new banana hammock is better than a hug

I suppose we must set aside time for these things. May it pass quickly and leave you cleansed.

Blog On!

I am sure you considered this, but, for my money, it's a damned good thing you chose Monty Powell over Monty Python. Somehow the themes wouldn't have gone together quite as well. In fact - I guarantee that.

If you still ain't got that "loaner", get another freakin' DOG!!!

You've been waxing country quite a bit these days. Must be something in the Twinkies.
