Why are You Crying?
Why are you crying
You have a good life
You are a privileged young girl
On paper nothing is truly wrong with you
So why are you crying
You cry so often
Tears seem to engulf you
like the tide on a full moon
Emotions drifting in and out
Shifting hundreds of tiny grains of sand
But never enough to move a shell
Heavy waves crashing against the shore
White noise to all that you feel
muting the feelings you’re pleading to hear
Because you’re sick of knowing somethings close
knowing that your “breaking point” near
Honestly, your tears mean nothing to me
They aren’t the type that weigh you down
Make it hard to breathe
The ones that make your body, head, and chest heavy
The ones that make your heart weak
They are nothing but water and salt
A mere saline solution
Burning your scars
Coming down rapidly one after the other
They hold no recognizable emotion
They’re not sad tears
You’re not mad
No one has harmed you
And your tears fall for no rhyme or reason
So why won’t you stop?
You can cry with a smile on your face
Or in the dark with your eyes closed
Muting your sobs praying that no one comes to check on you
Why don’t you want anyone to come check on you?
At least that would make the tears stop
Because you would rather die then cry in front of someone
Is it Weakness?
Do you see your tears as weakness?
Do you believe that they hold you back?
Chain you to the ground
Lock you in a cage
And throw away the key
That they have kidnapped you
and you have no chance of being found
Yet you still won’t stop crying
The cold water from the shores of your heart
Have begin to wash your mental away
But have you ever seen a sea with scars?
It always seems like the sand and shells end up shifting back into place
Like a silent death
No visual difference
But under the water you’re fighting against the current
And you are not ok
