The Crack


I feel empty inside tonight

Filled with nothing at all

Sometimes it can be a blessing

But not today

It's like the "silence before a storm"

I have found that at some point today

Something just cracked deep within

Tears started to flow once again

Waiting for that moment with you

But this crack formed within my heart

Left me blind…knowing

You might not be around

But our love is strong enough

To survive this crisis

We are dealing with

Uh-oh... the crack that starts in the heart until it has become a yawning fissure in the fabric of your brain, engulfing the day ahead... Know that one! Like a glacier opening up and taking you down. Well put, Tinka.. now go have fun with Baby Girl! The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow, Annie! :))

A profound report from the depths of emotional despair. The ability to translate such devastating feeling into moving poetic art is as extraordinary as the nakedness of the poem itself. The visual art kicks ass as well.

Love calms the storms of life; binds up the broken hearted; heals pain, and with such power, seals any cracks that appears with tears.

A heart play, Tinka.

I'm feeling down it always makes me cray
Then I need A drink!!

No one ever need be ashamed to cry. Tears are a sign of caring and love. They show you have a heart. Well written my friend.

Tears sometimes just need to escape, our hearts will only bare the burden of so much and then we must release...I always feel better after a good cry, I can see things a bit more can help us withstand much of what life throws at us...hang in there my dear friend!

Sometimes dear Tinka the heart can only carry the weight of so many tears then it forces us to release so it can start to regroup and stive to find a better tomorrow. Hopefully that is the case with your own tears.

Love can carry us through so much, Tinka, but we aren't mountains of strength -- we can't help but have a day here and there where our strong hearts melt down just a little. Very well done, hon.
