this one touches me...I understand your pain...sometimes we are the only ones who have the key to set ourselves free...give the pain back to them...it belongs to them.
with our writing... comes healing...
take care, janet marie
~Take These Tears~
Take these tears, I wont cry them anymore,
They fall like wasted wine and scatter on the floor.
Take this pain, its been here way too long,
You use it to keep a hold on me-but I'm feeling suddenly strong.
Take this shame-it always belonged to you,
Keep it with the lies you told and the broken promises too.
Take this rage...you deserve it most of all,
If you think I'm gonna get over it-your headed for a fall.
Take this silence, I know you've heard its sound before...
Its the first thing you hear...after the slamming of the door.

...every moment of every day...
your still with me in every way.
every poem and song...
every rhyme and verse...
your still here...like a beautiful curse.
