  • Teardrop

    A drop of clear salty liquid secreted from glands in a person's eye when they cry or when the eye is irritated
    Scientifically that's all a tear is
    But tears are more than that
    They may only be saltwater
    But whenever they cascade down my cheeks
    They feel like acid
    But acid that doesn't stop at burning my skin
    Tears burn away at my very soul
    They turn me weak
    Tears make me seem helpless
    I don't want to be a damsel in distress
    But whenever I cry that's what I become
    It's a complete transformation in the eyes of people I know
    Because a tear isn't just a tear
    It's a reason
    Usually more than one
    Because when a person cries they are saying they've had enough pain
    Different people may have different loads they can carry
    But everyone has a point where it's just enough
    And whether physical or emotional
    Most people do not wish to see another human in pain
    They want to fix it
    They want to make people stop crying
    But when people try to see me as needing their help
    Whether I do or not
    All I say is:
    A tear is nothing but a drop of clear salty liquid secreted from glands in a person's eye when they cry or when the eye is irritated
    Even though I know that isn't true
