The tears are ready and waiting. Ready and waiting to come pouring out with the next bit of bad news and misfortune that comes my way. I don’t know how much longer I can hold them back. I don’t know how much more I can take.

Some say I have a hard heart (I guess I have you to thank for that) but that image may be shattered if life keeps going like its been these last few months. If these situations don’t end I might not be able to keep up this persona.

Please, please, please don’t give the tears the power they need to flow. Please, please, please don’t be the reason I drop into a despair so deep I may drown in it. Please, please, please just don’t be the reason I lose control. Please.
