Tears

Like a dam breaking

And every emotion overtaking
The heart finally bursting
Open and closed, throbbing

With so much hatred, 
love, 
bitterness 
and shame

The clear blood running down her face
Screaming, not screaming, inside the rage
She finally fell asleep to soothe the pain


Quotes on Tears

“Tears shed for another person are not a sign of weakness. They are a sign of a pure heart.”
― José N. HarrisMI VIDA: A Story of Faith, Hope and Love

“It’s so curious: one can resist tears and ‘behave’ very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer… and everything collapses. ”
