no tears today

No Tears Today

Eyelashes dry and brittle
Lament songs of loss.

Marathon nose—
Never as a hose to a waterfall.

Sighs and wails consider escape
but dare not.

Ears turn red, brows furrow,
Expressions struggle between north and south.

Fingers spasm a dance,
Feet threaten the ground.

Thoughts enter forbidden depths
Patrolled by haunting pasts.
Pain is felt.
And yet no tears are shed.

Numbness is the king of emotional hell.
