Dim and dark
on sunken wings
the melting glow
of tears on skin
and dint of pressure
grasping spare
and turning raw
those gaping eyes
stinging the sight
of what is right in front of us.

Its hard to comprehend, but i relate to your lower paragraph.
Crying can, in fact, clear our vision.
Thank you for the inspiration...
