started my day with a cry

more an existential sorrow than anything else

isn’t that strange

nothing set it off

just woke up and felt like maybe

just maybe

i should release the tears barely restrained

maybe it was an overloaded tear duct

or the headache that has become my constant companion

but i started my day off with a cry

and everything is now painted with sadness


tomorrow will be happy

or the day after perhaps
today we wallow in misery

soak our cheeks in salient saline


is a day

for tears
