Last Tear

Do you think one can ever 'cry their last tear'? We hear phrases like 'I've cried my last tear over you,' or 'I'm not going to shed another tear over that'! Well, guess what?  The very next time the situation arises, BOOM, there goes the water-works!
We (women and men) are emotional beings. No matter how we try, some emotions are out of our control. One is the tear
Realize this: Shedding tears is a huge and healthy emotional release especially if you experience sadness, deep pain, or stress. Although there are the so-called "strong" individuals, who think they can control the tear, but can they really?
The urgency to release can be an overpowering feeling, thus taking a toll on the natural expression of emotional release. You must realize that crying is natural. It is a way to release pent-up feelings. If it’s not expressed, usually relief generates in other forms; e.g. anger, extensive exercise, verbal abuse... and the list goes on. Yes, you’ll try to suck up emotions and absorb the hurt and pain. You may even ignore what’s really going on, but don't suppress it, even if you have to 'go to your' quiet place. Let it go… 

And then there it is 
And then they began 
Those unwanted leaks
That can't be dried by hands
You thought it was all over
And you had found you joy
Then all of a sudden you realize
Your emotions have been toyed 
You figured you had cried your last tear
There was none left, no reason to cry
And at a vulnerable moment
You couldn't hold back 
as much as you'd tried

It seems some things get the best of you
No matter how tough your skin
You portray being stoic, unmovable
But the unforeseen breaks through again
It's unannounced, unwanted
Sneaky and riveting
Untrusting, relentless
Piercing, annoying

...and NOT the 'last tear'
