Crying for tears

If these thoughts are real
then they must be
of normal...

A balance of abnormal
that is both astringent
and self absorbing.

In abstinence they 
become relentless
in their pursuit 
the remaining raw edges
of hope surrenders
to un-forgiveness.

Crying for tears,
an emollient for despair.

ps: not so sure just where this came from of if it even makes sense.just wrote it 
down in a flash.
