31 Day Challenge October

Day 16: Tears

You spend most of your life feeling everything with intensity – like the chafing of a raw cut.

Your eyes pay the price of their negligence, they pay in pearls scavenged from your soul’s deepest caverns

And you pray to Him to just please, please make this go away.

You wonder, whether you should thank Him
or complain to Him.
