    Would You?

    What would you say if you could see my tears?  Would you say anything at all? Would you hold me and tell me everything would be okay when you have doubts yourself?  Would you accept my tears as part of me or would you run away?  I do not know how to wake up from...

    Crying Through The Night

    The tears flow ever so slowly as if unaffected by gravity. They burn and sting as they are pulled forth, Every emotion that I have ever felt is inside each drop. My ears have been made deaf and my eyes made blind by this. The only thought I have is: Where is my mind? Emotions...

    Many Tears

    I've cried many many tears. Every time they cascade down my cheeks they end up on my lips, and it's a very salty taste. I just lick them and continue to cry.

    The First Round Or So.

    but the longer you cry, the less salty the tears get. at least that's how it works with me. so i recommend tasting some of the earlier ones if you're looking for optimum salty goodness.
