Leave If You’re Uncomfortable

I add to the river of brackish water
As my pain seeps down my face
No longer able to hide the overflow inside
That I have stemmed for far too long
A hybrid of strength and deception
Though I feel weak at the loss of control
But to rid me of the toxins that clog my soul
I shall weep until I am cleaned within
Until there is not another drop to shed
And if it should offend you that I am emotional
Then you are free to leave my space
For I bare the disease that bottling causes
And I the burden that drags in my chest
Not you
