damn these tears

damn these tears.

i thought they went away.

maybe not for good,

but just away for a while.

but they’re back.

and flooding.

and the pain.

the ache.

the break in my heart that seems to mend simply to break all over again.

it hurts just as bad as it did before.

i know they say grief comes in waves but

dammit,

does it have to knock me down so hard?

just as i was starting to stand again.
