When you can't cry anymore?

Curled up in the darkest corner of her mind, she waits
Silently...staring blankly down at the floor. Rocking back and forward
and the painted, cold concrete floor. The moon through the window
gives off just enough light to show her tiny silhoutte on the dry
wall. A small pedestal fan blows slighty, tissues flutter above the
tiny pink tissue box, where she left it the night before. Only tonight
there are no tears running from her deep, ocean blue eyes. Perhaps
today was a good day? Or maybe she has run out of tears, she is tired
of crying. Her bloodshot eyes, only held open by the caffiene, they
are all dried up...with Nothing left to cry out, nothing left to
scream, nothing left to do... She feels like nothing. She feels
helpless. She feels terrified. Crying has been her only
she's lost...suffering.
What do you do when you can't cry anymore?


  1. Ok so I know I'm not a girl, but I can relate really well to this. That is a really good question....what do you do when you can't cry anymore? It's a scary moment of finding out what you're really capable of.

  2. I've felt this too much lately.

  3. It's when of the worst feelings when even your tears abandon you. It's like nothing is there for you to hold on to and you are so brittle you'd break at any second.

  4. Bitter tears, bitter memories. Too trapped to even realize just how little moisture is left in your eyes. Beautiful piece-it speaks to everyone. That's a rare gift.

  5. "What do you do when you can't cry anymore?"

    This is a very good question. I don't know?

  6. It's a scary thought, all cried out. I don't know what my own next move would be.
