Tears are the betrayers of our souls. We can fight and we can turn away, but once they pierce the backs of our eyes, we cannot halt them.
Relentlessly, they come.
Tears have a will of their own. They are strong and will grip our throats and strangle us until we are forced to release them.
Powerfully, they come.
Tears will sell our secrets, flaunt our vulnerability and make easy fools of us.
So, with all this said, why don’t
Let them rain down and wash me away.
Let the water sanitise, let their salt sterilise and
Let me be clean.
