Tears

You hate crying. You despise the tears that flow down your cheeks, the gasps and chokes in your breath. It exposes you, leaves you vulnerable and weak to anyone watching. But worst of all, it reveals all that you tried so hard to cover. The false smiles, the empty laughter, and the lies you spoke. It falls apart with your trembling lips, your red eyes, your wretched cries. You don't want them to see, you don't want them to know. Escape. And so you run far away. You run until your sobs can't be heard, your shame can't be felt, and your tears can't be seen.
