A letter to The Man

I know you want to fix me, but I’m not a broken toy.
Your trusty letter opener and superglue won’t work on me.

I know you don’t understand what is going on in my head.
How can I expect you to, when I struggle to myself?

I know finding me crying in the dark seems irrational to you.
But for me, sometimes it’s the only thing that makes sense.

I know you have been trying hard to be supportive.
I appreciate your efforts so much, even when you falter.

Above all else, I know that you love me unconditionally.
Right now that is exactly what I need.

All my love



  1. Light/dark, inside/outside, day/night. Doesn’t matter to me where I cry. You just have to cry sometimes, no matter where you are Nee. Hope everything is okay? Just sing out if you ever need a shoulder.

  2. Thanks for this read. Your positive, do-something-about-it approach is great.

  3. Hugs Nee.. It is totally acceptable to cry in the dark.. Or Lock yourself in your room & cry also works.
