I stood in that field all alone on a cold night
as the rain poured down.
I leaned back my head and let out the anger that was inside me
the scream felt like it had lasted for hours from the weight that was lifted off of me.
I felt so free after it and I knew this was what I needed to release because if I didn’t I would snap at you and that wouldn’t be right.
As I walked through the door an hour later, you were waiting for me patiently knowing that I needed my time alone and now I was ready to let you in.
All night we talked until the pressure that was on my mind and heart was gone and I could breathe and smile again and truly be happy and feel safe with you.
I know now that I Should have released all this pain years ago but, now that it is gone I’m happy and at peace with what was and what is to come.
