    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.

    Tears of a Trapped Lover...

    I cry a lot these days, the box is closing in around me. You aren't doing well, you are trying to be free. The tears spell out our future, distant and deep with a long journey. I would travel thousands of miles to hold you again, to just be with you...to touch you. To whisper...
