from where tears

what causes these surprising tears

to gather in their wells?

is it aching for a friend

or whisperings of spells,

or is it simply chemicals

rebelling ‘gainst their chain,

or that new invader that is

growing in my brain?

there was no warning trigger,

no passing cruel remark,

so for the logical voyeur

no cause on which to hark.

and yet the blurring of the words

confirms that they exist

despite the absence of events

or causes i could list.

i cannot now explain their time

or presence on this day

and so i blink and then distract

and will them all away.

  1. I can totally relate – sometimes they seem to appear for no reason. I find it frustrating to not have more control over the tears.
