What if one day I broke,
What if the floodgates opened;
the resivoirs suddenly emptied?
Would I lay waste to everything important:
It would certainly be liberating,
but extremely destructive, I think.
The stress is building,
the force becoming more extreme.
So far, the structural integrity is holding,
but there have been leaks,
rare outpourings that feel great--
until the waterworks start.
Then I just feel empty.
There's nothiing lieft to hold,
because it's all been released,
and there's no way to pull it back in.
