love needs tears and i can’t cry anymore

every tear i’ve

shed for the



prevents me


pursuing you.

make no mistake,

all pure love

requires buckets

and buckets

of joyous and sad


but i have no more

to offer,

so, please…

go find that

one with

the tallest water towers;

you deserve all the tears this world can hold.
