Saltless Tears

Tear are salty, Mine are not, I did swallow them twice, Never did they taste thus, I cannot warrant for all times, But for these two times I can say for sure, What went inside wrong? And the salt did not quite come out with them, I cannot comprehend full, But I can say for sure, That the events which caused them, Were so full of acidic brine and salt, That probably tears felt ashamed, And left their salt behind.
