crying - Sophia Kaushik


i’ve spent so much time crying

my head has begun to hurt

my shoulders ache

since so many hours of mine have been used

to curl up on the floor

and release my pent-up emotions

with music as kindling

and my heavy heart as a flame

i sit in my sorrow

in my misery

in my crowded loneliness

and my unwarranted pain

i cry myself to sleep

and i cry myself awake

i cry in the evenings

and i cry at dawn

and though the things that trouble me

never leave my mind

when i cry

i release a part of them

through my tears
