(Today was very interesting, mentally.  And this song is so perfect to write to, despite not sticking to the subject matter.  And I had to use the unplugged version because it helps to get lost in thought.  Day 196…)

But I can’t let you know it.  Pride won’t let me show it..

Pride
Keeps me from shedding tears
Doing something that a man isn’t supposed to do
Show signs of weakness
Fallacies created by storytellers too afraid to let their eyes see the rain

Cry.
Don’t just sob in your stanzas
Let droplets fall
Wash your ego clean
That ego can be the margin keeping you from filling pages with vulnerability
Make your sheets as sensitive as your soul
Make your soul as sensitive as loose leaf under faucet
Words stain on paper
They don’t on heart.
