One tiny tear

Begins its journey 
From the heart.

Its destiny to be released 
No longer privately withheld

Sometimes its power overwhelms 
With the momentum gained from containment
Finally released it crashes like surf 
Only to be pacified when the winds die
And the tide turns.

Sometimes it makes its appearance gently
soothing with its rocking motion 
Settling when spent

It ends it journey 
As it began 
one tiny tear
Forced into daylight 
Tracing its path across the still face
Finally a drop.
