Where do tears come from
by alley 091
right before they leave your eyes?
Do they come from the heart?
or a secret place in the mind?
I've noticed your tears are clear
Oh so pure, but salty like sweat.
Clean like water, but burns like poison.
I've noticed tears are full of emotion.
a mixture of joy or of sadness
a mixture of hate or of madness
Did you ever notice that tears are hot?
like boiling water from a bubbling pot.
Or like a stream flowing downwards
right from the mountain top?
I've noticed tears are like waterfalls
Each makes a splash...
One falls into with no sound
One falls with a crash.
Have you ever noticed?
Tears have meaning?
From suicide notes
to mothers holding their new born babies...
