The Chemistry of Tears


A word of true kindness
something sincere,
provokes a fountain of tears.

They fill up quietly; but deliberately,
they pool at my rim,
and slowly bubble over,
they stream through my lashes
never ending,
a river of tears.

They know truth,
flow freely when my heart connects to a higher sense–deep and real.
They flood my soul, moving me to another space
An elixir of emotion.

They have the power to soothe me,
shock me,
scare me.
What makes them appear out of nowhere?

Maybe you’ve heard
There’s great power in words.
