They fall, cascading down your cheeks
When you are happy and sad.

The fulfillment of a true miracle 
Or the loss of that miracle 
Breaks the peace of serene eyes.

Pinches, pokes, and lashes across
Your ego erupt in a bout of saline

Damp pillowcases next to burnt out
Candles of loved ones
Collect in lakes that run rivers 
From wax and cotton.

Alone, cold, and without 
Another soul to connect 
Elicits a monsoon of fear
That burns the heart 

Shinning jewels of emotion
Fits of joy
Pains of loss
Agony of the flesh
Lonely sorrows all called
