To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.




It hurts, to see and hear 



someone you love, hurting. 



To hear and see, the fresh waves



of hurt fall upon them,



makes my eyes water;



watering what?



The sadness, the pain,



that we all have to endure through



the storms. 



 



Don't let the saltiness dry



inside your eyes;



the saltiness that dries



in your eyes,



will melt and fall down, 



clear and salty;



stinging your eyes. 



And then exploding,



in small shards of the ocean;



drops containing the whole ocean.



 



If you had asked,



what I had done last night,



I would have had said, 



"I watched tears of pain, 



breaking to pieces;



I watched little saltiness,



melt in the bittersweet heat



of someone's eyes;



I watched my mother's tears



turn into glass and shatter."

I'm glad that you can connect to it, Liv. And you're right. :) It is hard, but anything worthwhile is going to be a challenge. It's never going to be eeays, but it's going to be simple. Haha, if that makes sense. Also, yes. We sometimes do have to see it, so we can fix them and grow stringer in faith. :) Thank you so much, Liv., my friend. :)

I can sooooo realate to this!!!! The feeling you get when watching someone i pain is worse than experiencing it yourself. It's hard, but sometimes we have to see it so we can fix them ^_^ Keep going :)
