Cry myself to sleep.

Tears, the indication of the sadness that occurs in our lives but occationaly of joy. This context is not for the latter.

Sadness, one of the negative emotions. The lower regions, or the beginning, of grief. Just like all the other emotions, sadness comes with a punch right at your core, and it strikes hard. Everyone knows the words "sadness is beautiful, loneliness is tragical" by Backstreet Boys' hit Shape of My Heart. There's a fine line between sadness and loneliness and in an artistic way sadness could be beautiful but it doesn't mean the emotion in itself is.

A loss causes sad, or grief, depending on the situation and the burden of coming back to ones everyday life is too much to handle. When you lose something, naturally, you lose a apart of yourself with it. Causing a void in your being, or heart, an empty hole that your mind directly sets on the mission to filling it. But overlooking the part were you're supposed to be dealing and later, accepting.

You're sad because you are broken, you're not complete. Either you lost something that meant more to you than you thought or you lack something that have the potentional to make you whole. Dealing with that causes one's everyday life to be harder. You're constantly reminded of what do not have, or do not have anymore.

You are allowed to cry, but you're also allowed to heal. You only know what you had once you've lost it but, at that point, its supposed to be too late. Supposed.

Did you know that crying doesn't effect you emotionally but also physically? When you cry, the channels below your eyes, that produces tears begin to work and the muscles in your face contracts. You also get a fast breathing, increased pulse and a sense of exhaustion. Your entire body is working, like you're running a marathon. Except for the lack of running, unless you're being chased. So its natural that you feel tired and exhaustion when you cry, you're using energy, and thus giving the meaning that one can literally cry yourself to sleep.

You may cry, you may break down and the whole world is unfair but one thing is for sure. It won'r last forever.
