“But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more” – Hans Christian Andersen

Weep

Let the tears find their way

Through your soul and out into the open sky.

A mere droplet of,

Love,

Pain,

Grief and,

Joy!

A mere droplet of,

The very things which cannot be expressed through

Words…

But weep still.

In this ecstasy of helplessness.

In this joy of painful memories.

And weep more

In the sound of this heartbeat

In the echo of this silence.

When consumed in this magical moment,

Weep still more in the witnessing of it,

And still more in the living of it.

And yet more,

In the inspiration of it.

    I know all too well the struggle to try and put the ineffable into words… perhaps you are right, maybe we should not hold back our tears.
