reticence

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
buoyancy

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

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

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