Old habits die hard. I am still almost completely soundless when I cry, just my body shakes with sobs. And spilled tears surprise me with their heat and their taste.

And as he held me, there was a part of me that slipped away from the entire experience. That floated near the ceiling like a moth, and watched a woman crying silently, and a man who held her without speaking and kissed very gently her shut eyelids, and Sadness and Tiredness and Hollowness drifted like smoke about the room.

I'm glad he was there for you. He sounds like such a kind and gentle man.

I've told you before, if any of us should be a writer, it's you.

Have a great vacation :)

He is indeed, a thoroughly good man. :)

And I think anyone who wants to write should give it a stab. It's good to be creative and to self-express.

I cry all the bloody time, but I like to cry best on my own for some reason. Actually I think I kinda like it, it soothes me in a way nothing else does.

Crying is good :)
Sometimes I like to cry on my own, but really I yearn to cry with companionship because for so many years I was not allowed to cry at all. And being able to allow myself to cry, and shockingly enough cry in front of another human being is a really big deal for me, and quite therapeutic.

men who aren't afraid to cry are great.
