tears

They leak out of my eyes and run down my face in small rivers.
I am now used to their comings and goings; they are unbidden at times, whilst at other times they are triggered by a memory. ... by a song.
Sometimes they fall from my face in fat, salty drops to wet my blouse or fall to the carpet, while other times they dry on my cheeks leaving their faint trace of salt.
They are like a nosy neighbour - if you don't let them in every so often, they catch you off guard when you'd rather they left you alone....
I know them too well.
That is so good! My son aged 2 said to me 43 years ago, "my eyes are leaking, Mum"! What a soft purple and very fine definition on this!

This is a beautiful capture. Love the color and the water droplets. And thanks for sharing your sweet, sad, honest words. I am sorry to hear about your loss, your pain and your tears. I can't even fathom what that would be like to endure. Praying for you tonight.

Wonderful words, Amanda. I really do hate to cry and I don't cry often but when I do, it's a river and it's by myself. Beautiful shot and lovely color! Great work, gal!

Recently read "don't be afraid of your tears" and it really touched me somewhere deep. This is a beautiful, apt photo which goes far beyond photography. :) x
