Tears

bench

Tears

have never stopped

unwanted touches

unwelcome advances

hurtful words

Tears

have never sobered

a mother

a father

a husband

wife, child, sister, brother

Tears

have never brought back

a dead child

a lost lover

a forgotten friend

Tears

have never replenished

an emptied

bank account

refrigerator

gas tank

…Heart

Tears

have never repaired

a broken

relationship

family

dishes – furniture

arm, foot, leg, FACE

Tears

give me a headache

and make my eyes puffy

they give me nothing in return

and this my friends is why

I simply no longer cry
