You wonder how could someone cry empty tears.
You’ve wondered that since the first time you saw someone cry them.
Until now, when you cry them yourself.
They are the tears that escape your eyes silently. Your face doesn’t have an emotion to show. Yet your eyes show the emptiness crying brings. These tears crawl down your face as if it were essential to make some sort of track.
Of course these tears don’t come all of a sudden. They come first one at a time. Then two. Then three. Then more.
The type of tears that leave you so empty as you cry them out.
You don’t even really make a sobbing noise when you cry them.
