Hide Your Crazy

Gotta keep it together, even when you fall apart.

Lyrics by Kacey Musgraves, Shane McAnally, and Brandy Lynn Clark

I feel vulnerable right now.  Volatile.  I’m a wounded warrior who has lost the fight for another’s life, but the arrow has not pierced my heel.  Instead, I feel pinching torture of aching loss in my Achilles Heart.  And like an injured animal, I act on instinct.

I don’t display the damage done.

I mask my fear.

Hide my hurt.

Stand my ground.

And wait…

I growl.

I snarl.

And I wait.

I wait for someone to extend an arm to me in comfort…

…So that I can sink my teeth into that arm…

…And rip the fucker off.

    If you have a cut you need to clean and disinfect it. Picking splinters and debris out then swabbing with alcohol helps to heal the wound, but it doesn’t make it easier to watch them flinch. Wishing you well.

      The right thing is rarely the easy thing, but it doesn’t make it any less right. We said good-bye this morning.

      This wound will scar when it closes, but scars are what keep memories piercingly clear, and I wouldn’t forget her for the world.
