The bold honesty here has taken my breath. thank you for sharing what we all (females) are apprehensive to approach. If only men felt comfortable to just "be" themselves. Women might go overboard with emotions, but men "can't" show their sadness, is sad in itself.....
Sorry to hear about your brother, my ex-wife is battling colon/rectal cancer at the moment. It is a hard road and I really feel ya.
Great poem too.
I friggn cry all the time. Sometimes it doesn't even seem like I need a reason. Bottling it up, that just kills you slowly tho... I think it is more strong to let it out and show that we are human after all.
But I know I too hide myself away so no one can see.
