What is this heaviness I feel inside?
It wells up in me, lying just behind my eyes
From my heart it seems to stem
With pulses, its energy seems to overwhelm
My body feels tender, my feelings even more
Washing over me like waves that leave me sore
It seems to want an outlet, a way to break free
My aliveness thrashes as if drowning in a sea
So I stop and surrender, allowing the release
Drops of tears seep out, salty with healing increase
In streams their flow caresses, down my face into every crease
This cry I am feeling does not drown me…
I am floating in this deep place of peace.
