Tears (11/18/2013)

I've been holding back these tears 

for so long

When I finally blink them away,

I suddenly find more reason

to cry.

I've gotten into such a mess

surely I don't deserve self pity.

The oddly comforting, merited right

to cry.

Because the blame is mine

But then I crumble again.

Here I am.

I've cried out for help so many times,

and every time I tthink I see shore

I find myself drowning again

So I've given in to these tears.

That's right,

I cried.

Is that what you wanted?

Is that what it takes to get results?

Would you prefer I cry?

I'm crying.

I'm crying now.

Is it working?

Are my tears working?
