Reflection of a Tear

A torrent of tears in this ocean

Bittersweet memories longing for freedom

Wave upon wave surging forward

Raging, writhing

Yearning to find release

Ever-present, hidden, rising

Beneath its mirrored surface

Crashing

Choking

Drowning

Overwhelming sorrows

Break upon the shore

Cling upon the air

Gasping, fighting for breath

And are no more

Non-existence overtaking

Swept up in these tears

To flow again through glassy eyes

A stranger’s face

Looking out, pleading silently for help

Does anybody hear her, I wonder

And I realize

This morbid creature Is one I’ve never known

It’s me
