"Slithering Tears"

September 1, 2007
By Calez Reeves, Hoover, AL

The stinging sensation of tears burning at the back of your eyes.
You roll your eyes back to look at the ceiling in order to keep the tears from slithering down your dry face.
Things aren't going the way that you hoped.
Your heart's getting broken, you wanted it to stay whole.
The day you found out what happened was probably a month ago,
but nevertheless you're stuck in your room with no desire to live, no reason to hope.
