I’m well aware of the fact that some people think that crying is a sign of weakness.

It is not in anyway true. The act, crying, comes as an earnest and beautiful need to express bounteous feelings that cannot hide.

Call me weird. I’ll still say it: crying is beautiful. It is not a sign of weakness.

Who decided tears
are weak?
To hold them back
is to bend to the
will of society
Men, who
show their innermost
as each jewel
encased in empathy
to the floor
are our true

I cried today
the tears stained
my cheeks like berries
freshly plucked
I felt the pain
ancestors screaming
in my brain.
A beautiful relief
tears like rain
some call it weakness
but those some
are in pain.
I cried today & I’ll be ok.

Whispering close to you
tears flood our beautiful
they secret my uncertainty
like rain on my lips.

Simmering thoughts make us
drinking our minds
wondering if that kiss
still wanted another.

I silence my poetic
dazzled by your look
wanting summer’s breeze
drying your lonely tears.

The Beautiful tears
You gave me
Softly flowing
Down my face
Youโ€™ve showed
Me love
Not hate
Im not weak
If i cry
Its a sign
Of joy
not just pain
So let those
Tears flow
Only your
Soul will

The levity of feelings
splendours your eyes
poetic silence dazed
embracing your tears
libertine in ocean breeze
Limpet thoughts
whispers summer tones
beautiful n sweet
like dandelion wine
lipsed in a stolen kiss.
