Lingering Waters


The eye stings as if it’s being pierced, hurt. Water flows behind, taking the path of least resistance, it’s usual plight.

The water is hot as it spills over the eyelid and glides down the slope of a cold cheek.

Now more and more comes from behind, pushing it’s way out and down to wait it’s turn, dripping on the edge of the chin to be forever blotted out by cottony tissue.

The water doesn’t mind if it has to linger, pooling and waiting it’s turn for twenty years to finally ever be released.

Tears of remorse

Tears of regret

Tears grief

Tears of loss

Tears of shame

Tears of sorrow, brought to God can bring…

Tears of Joy, Tears of happiness, Tears of healing, Tears of healing and Tears of love♡.

  1. Tears are a gift from God. So are your words. ❤

    Ps 56.8-14 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word. In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

    1. Tears can be healing if we allow them and allow God to turn them into something good like Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.

        1. Well whoever said society knows what’s right? If society had its way we’d all be closed off, closed minded prejudiced people with no compassion. God gave men the ability to shed tears right along with us women.
