Full Body Tears

“Every cell in my body feels as if
it’s turned to tears.
Like my whole body is crying, too.”

These tears are spilling over my eyes at last. The drops fall so fast, they barely grace my checks as they fall like rain. Every cell in my body feels as if it’s turned to saline. Like my whole body is crying right along with me. And all I want to do is follow the waves out to sea. But I know I can’t. I know I have to keep going. Because I’m still alive. And that means I’m still fighting. Even through my weakest moments, I’m still fighting.

I’m fighting
for my life.
