there are

several types of tears that one tends to cry

the first one is the dense crying

which involves few tears but

the soul is pulled down and crushed

to smithereens, leaving a dull foggy feeling

the second one is the overflow

which involves a torrent of tears

brought on by a touch in the chest

and a sadness on a whim

the final one is the leak

a break in the pipe

in which the tears slug out of the eyes slowly

mixing and dropping in the mouth

often a sign

of a fed up, frustrated emotion

kept deeply within the body

in the arms, the legs, the neck

in places where other emotions have not been stuffed

stored away like fat

only to come up again

when needed
