In these tears I can feel

The whole weight of your heart,

Emotions that you seal,

That could drive you apart

From yourself, from your soul;

In this soft, salty rain

That somehow keeps you whole

I can feel your deep pain.

Always darkest is night

Before the first new light,

This might not be the worst

But you are not the first

And surely not the last

To succumb to this ache

Come from ages long past.

Oh my dear desperate youth

Do know that you can make

It through the deadly storm

And one day time might soothe

The soreness of your form.
