I rarely allow myself emotional freedom. There's always something in my eye, some yawn tugging at the corner of my mouth, or I'm just too busy for these petty feelings.

I'd like to cry, just once, in front of everyone--so they can see how I look broken and vulnerable, so they can see I can.

My eyes look greener when I cry...no one's seen them that way, though. I think I'm more beautiful like that, though...

So what would happen if you could see me cry? What if we all cried when we felt like it? Would we be closer and more open with each other? Or would it just be the same, except with the occasional sob? Maybe it would make things worse...maybe I shouldn't think.

What I really want, more than anything, is for my troubles to be a puddle on your shoulder.
