Today was one of those “let it all loose” days. The kind of day that sends everything washing over me like a cleansing shower that rinses away all the dirt and shit that’s been accumulating, leaving behind pink skin and the fresh scent of soap.
And the tears flow.
These days are exhausting in a productive way, for me at least, with all due respect to the poor witnesses.
Emotions govern. Logic takes a seat in the back row – just for today.
The toxins are making their exit from my body at last. Salty tears, runny nose, melting weight… and the itchy rash pushing poison out of my skin like a garlic press.
A good night’s sleep and then the white-knuckling begins.
