Need A Release

Need a release
More than just physically
My mental needs to be stroked
Play with in ways that would take my breath away
Release me please

I need a release
Of the struggle to stay in character when everyone in my world is giving me cause to step out of it daily
They don't want that release

from the pain of seeing my children go through things that I wish I could change
Damn they need a release

from the heartache of not being loved and return
When I love unconditionally even through their rain
This love thang is insane but I can't release

I'm strong they say
I got it all together they think
Handling all I can because I must Superwoman or bust nah I'm Wonder Woman on that you can trust

When a warm hug a deep kiss a true I love you will be bliss
A night of just dinner and a movie would move me
A call just to check in from a great friend could Release Me from the depression trying to creep in
Where is that release

Then again.........

I collect my thoughts and light my candle
Find my favorite mental hideaway and begin to handle
Letting loose the stress that presses on me
Raising my vibe resetting my energy
Crown adjusted
Crisis averted
This Goddess is ready to face another day
After the Release Of..... Yesterday
