Midnight:49

They say when a tear falls from the left eye

it symbolizes pain

Which makes perfect sense

as I try to refrain

They say when tears from the right eye

it’s from happiness…

Though I see no difference

as my face is still wet

releasing the very thing in which the body is most made of

how could such emotions

nearly leave us depleted

What happens when tears fall from both eyes?

Is there any logical way to describe

exactly what’s going on inside

when all you want to do is run and hide?

…because we live in a world where crying is weakness

be it pain or joy

we quickly wipe it all away

as if it were to annoy…

Let them fall,

regardless of location

for the cleansing of the soul

deserves recognition.
