Fountain of Tears

I’ve never in all of my life,

at least I don’t ever remember a time,

where I’ve been so close to tears

so much.

 

Actually,

 

Let me change that.

Not just close to tears

but allowing them to slip down my cheeks,

and even bursting with a tear fountain that I couldn’t stop.

 

Tears: when you broke up with me

Tears: when you said you’d never let me go

Tears: when you said “I love you”

Tears: when I don’t understand you

Tears: when I’m afraid you’re a figment of my imagination

Tears: when I’m scared I will become a monster

Tears: when I imagine life with you

Tears: when I watched you teach my cousins horseshoes

Tears: when I imagine toddling around with your child in me

Tears: when I’m scared of what the future holds for us.

 

I’ve never in all of my life,

at least I don’t ever remember a time,

where I’ve been so close to tears

so much.

 

Actually ,

 

Let me change that.

Not just close to tears

but allowing them to slip down my cheeks,

and even bursting with a tear fountain that I couldn’t stop.
