Small Things

Poetry, what else?


22. Give Way To Tears

Tears stream down my cheeks,

Their paths glisten in the artificial light.

This hasn't happened for weeks,

Not even during the night.


Surely this shows weakness

But I've begun to think it's because I care,

I want to live with happiness

And not give it to others and share.


Knowing I can't cope

But trying to believe I can,

As the tears coil around my eyes like a rope

I realise I need to stand firm and be a man.


Tears like these

Give me a break,

Not unlike visiting the sea,

And calm me down so I cease to shake.


Liberation is found in crying,

Somewhere for solace,

I no longer feel like I'm dying,

I have escaped pressure and malice.
