Remember these tears.
These tears I spill for you,
these tears that run down my cheeks.
These tears that could fill a bathtub for you.
These tears that are salty, and stingy and make me burn.
Remember these tears 
that leave my eyes red and sore
and my chest hard and tight 
and my heart tired and failing
and my head whirling and pounding 
and my eyes overspilling.
Spilling water
is better than blood
right?
These veins are to blue 
this skin is too pure
this mind is too innocent
to let a cut ruin them.
These tears are my remedy
these tears are my gift for you
these tears make me feel alive
and dead
these tears make my throat close up
my hands clench
and my feet stomp as if to say
It's not fair.
Remember these tears.
They are all for you.
If you remember this
you'll only imagine the pain I'm feeling.
The pain that's killing me.
