Single Tear A single tear full of promise left me today. I was relieved. It was decided that I could no longer carry any more Burdens … so it bore them for me. Like a faithful a friend it had been with me for a while. Just, just there… Voyeuristically haunting me. Steadily waiting, watching … on the brink.
Stubbornly hanging on … not yet ready to leave me. Then, pregnant with my pain one hot, fat, salty tear months in the making… slowly burned a pathway down my cheek. The course now made… others quickly followed. While a stream of one tore a streak thru my soul…a torrent of many stained my heart forever.
Ruthlessly thorough, together they crushed my psyche… pummeled it raw…robbing me of What little strength I had left. My private tragedy. I became immobile…the will to move was no longer mine to decide.
