You should know when you cry
that those tears become lenses
that blur out what’s real
and leave you defenceless.
They turn your eyes red
like blood in the nile:
a curse from old times
that floods out denial.
There is salt in those tears
that your mouth slightly tastes
like words from your eyes
your voice tries to embrace
but it’s too much for you
you wipe away all those tears
’cause your pain’s too complex
and tears make them seem clear.
