emotional piece from my heart

I'm welling up I want to cry
But tears are hard to shed
I drink 8 pints of water a day
So why should I lose some from my head
Once I start I will never stop
It’s like
A damn that's burst
A lake that's flooded
A tsunami of salty tears
All my grief in one out pouring
All my sorrow from across the years
But I won’t let it out
How long will I cry for
I have things that I need to do
No time now for the release I need
For tear ducts to bleed
But it’s getting harder
There’s a lump in my throat
God I feel like a little kid again
Then memories wash over me
Memories good and bad
A time gone past long ago
A time that's buried
Tucked away
Not for release today.
But now that I have touched it, it won’t let go
The cracks are starting to show
I don't know I just don't know
How long I can keep it in
How long can I keep it in.
Moistness on my cheek
It’s started, use my sleeve
Oh tear soaked sleeve
Unable to speak or catch my breath
A wailing noise sounds like a siren
Mixed with an elephant with a blocked trunk
To much shit flooding back at once
And I was only upset with my life today
The past has its evil way of haunting
Catching you when your guard is down
Its over, I think, clean myself up
Wash my face
Blow my nose
Hope nobody notices the red eyes
And the croaky voice
Go to bed nobody will see
Just how hard things have become for me.
