I cried when I discovered
Her murky, twisted past
I cried when I realized
Romantic love never seems to last
I cried when I woke up
From a violent dream
I cried when I couldn’t sleep
And the words in my head a steady stream
I cried when I lost
My place inside the store
I cried when my heart broke
For the first time and hit my core
I cried when I failed
That stupid test that didn’t matter
I cried when I lost
My sweatshirt, old and tattered
I cried and I cried and I cried
When I found out
No one could do a thing about those
Stupid, evil, helpless tears
I cried when I knew
They would follow me for years

I've been writing a lot of poems about crying and teardrops lately and I just thought I needed to sum it all up in a finale. So here it is.
