I Cried This Morning

I cried this morning,

the kind of tears that come unprovoked

that saturate your face, redden your eyes,

couldn’t catch my breath.

I cried this morning,

tears of so many hurts unspoken,

so much sadness suppressed,

a tear for every word I wish I could say,

although I know they’d fall on deaf ears anyways.

I cried this morning,

realizing the tears I shed were over you,

a loss I feel to my core,

a loss I’ve never truly verbalized,

masked behind anger.

I cried this morning,

it felt good, cleansing,

the tears were my truth

a reflection of how much losing you hurt,

it shook my foundation,

but still I stand strong,

although I cried this morning.


Tell me what you think!
