trembling but roaring



sometimes, you have to take a hot shower
at 10:03pm and stand there,
bare, alone, maybe afraid, and cry.
let every emotion that has ever
wrecked you overwhelm you.
allow the burning water mix with your salty
tears on your young skin; let your sobs shake
your tired frame; let your mind stop
thinking, let your heart break, let
every mistake and fear that has
ever hurt your heart swirl
down the drain. kneel,
stay there for a while.
sob. shake. break.


  1. oh no, i'll be fine, it's just a weird sound that comes from the inner depths of a human being when they feel a little cracked or broken, I think it's called sobbing.
