Like a water balloon about to burst
My emotions are threatening to spill
But where would they fall?
On my already soaked and heavy heart?
Who would catch them?
My arms ache under the weight of my unspilled emotions
My eyes sting from trying to hold them in.
Big girls don't cry.
Big girls don't cry?
Engineers don't cry.
How would you explain the pile of used tissue in my closet?
Maybe the tooth fairy left that when she came?
Or the mice I recently discovered in my house left it after watching that dvd that's been in the back of the closet?

Maybe I'm tired.
Maybe I'm just stressed.


Or maybe this is me telling you, I wish you would hold me while emotions free fall out of control, and tell me its okay.

Feel free to let out the emotions. Fergie might be right that big girls don't cry, but big people do....

There are those times..
And when you're that way,
It's really sad like you're truly alone.
I'm hugging you right now with my words,
Telling you, you'd be fine..
I'm here, with my words..
In whatever way you want..
Take care

Big girls do cry. So do engineers.

But only in the privacy of their rooms.
