I cried today for no reason

the tears just began to fall,

sitting here alone

waiting for you to call.

A darkness crept up and

caught me by surprise,

leaving me shocked and

unable to rationalize.

Where the thoughts came from

I can only guess,

maybe something deep down

that I need to confess.

A guilty secret that I had

kept submerged

has finally broken free and

needed to be purged.
