Have It Your Way

I cried for fifteen minutes straight last night.
And I encouraged it.
Maxwell set free a fist full of tears
And I cried till' I was out of breath
Till the last visible reflection of pain rolled down my face.
The throbbing in my chest never settled.
And the earthquake moving my body continued shaking me endlessly.
But when it was all over with or so I thought
Like the center of a hurricane
my whole world became still.
I have been seeking this silence for so long
that when I finally had it in my reach I couldn't grasp it.
And in that split second, the whirling tears resumed.
I lost control again.
Jesus take the wheel.
Peace.

I felt this same way last night, feels like you mirrored my exact emotions. Makes me feel at ease to know I'm not alone. Thanks.
