Tear everything out of your drawers and throw it on the floor. Who cares if you can't walk without breaking something?
See what it feels like to curl your long, tall body into a ball and hear your back popping and feel your knees bruising.
Slide into your bed and pull the teddy bear that you haven't seen in years to you chest. So soft and fuzzy, maybe you'll feel better.
But most of all, cry. Cry until your stomach hurts like you've been smacked by a wrecking ball. Cry until there's nothing left. Cry until your head throbs every time your heart beats.
Think about everything.
All the snubs, the things people said to you that hurt.
Act strong, like nothing bothers you.
And then let it out.
Let it all out, in that torrent of painful tears.
Curl your body until your forehead is against your knees. Does it hurt? Nothing compared to what's inside.
Crush the teddy against your ribs. Maybe you need it more than you thought. Its soft fuzz is soaked with tears.
Sob until your face turns red and your hair is damp around your cheeks. Then slowly, slowly…
Drift off to sleep.
And when you wake up…
You'll have gotten over it.
You'll be like me.
Author's Note: Meet the side of me that hardly anyone knows. Written about one of my worse days.
