every tear shed
is one
impossible weight
let go
from a fractured soul

yet the tears
seem endless

i have lost
all hope
in ever reaching

the light
a mirage
dancing on the waves
just out of reach

i dream of
shuddering awake
and i know
i was just
an impossible weight
shed off of
someone else’s soul

each tear
the waterline
until all we can do
is drown
one another
our sympathetic
snuffing out
the light
