August 2016

A tear walks down my cheek alone

unannounced and undetected

Heart unaffected

The only reason I know I'm crying

Is because I can feel my eyes emptying

Not because I feel something on my skin.

Tiptoeing down the contours of a cheek

Of a chin

Until they fall.

Gravity is merciless.

Thank God for pavement

Otherwise I'd still be falling.
