Ode to Crying

Standard

This is an ode to crying, like in the blazing sun

In a world where

Emotions are a mask for

The true one

 

While sadness is

Hard to diagnose,

Even though you can feel it in your bones

Thanks crying for being an obvious red flag

 

That something’s wrong

Out of place

Lost for a while

Or perhaps lost in time or space

 

Crying, you show courage

Even though you are humiliated, mocked

Keep on crying

Give it all you’ve got

Bottle it up, and then explode

For when people

Go into a lasting shock

 

Thank you crying for your

Salty appeal

For the wounds

You rip open,

Close shut, and miraculously heal.

 

Everyone has unique cry

It is a part of them as shy as they could

About it

Weeping

Screeching

Sobbing

Bawling

Howling

Wailing

Vary from a quiet sob

To wailing eardrum crushing…

 

 

 

 

Crying is an art –

Painting a picture

For the dumb, oblivious,

And the smart

That she loved him from the start

Now she is mangled in knots,

Broken apart

 

He sees her breakdown,

Take that cell phone

Her I-phone and maybe

Break it to bits

Like hitting it with a tazer

But she just flung it against the wall

Creating a sound of breaking metal

And an expression on the fall

The fall on this face

 

It ends now he decides

They reside each alone

The sadness in her heart

Now presides in his too

 

That’s what crying can do,

Bring out the best or worse in you

 

 

Crying you’ve teamed up with shaking

And lost contact with privacy

I have a bruise the shape of a baseball

From shaking and crying,

I expect an apology from you

 

But weeping, crying

When I can’t stop

Starting to burst, pop

Then you’ve gone too far.

I know I have to paint the picture

But break eardrums to, sounds like someone

Just lacerated and murdered my soul.

 

That’s something we could work

On me and you

Less crying,

More laughing?
