Tastes of Salt

I was a child once

Tears were simple

Hunger

Thirst

Mother

 

I am an adult now

Tears run down when I am calm

I don’t know why

Sadness is a state of being

It tastes of salt

Like food

Like life

Bitter

 

I have forgotten what its like to be happy

What it means to be free

Oh to be a child again

and to cry out loud

 

I make no noises

Tears are silent

And I have forgotten

Why they fall
