Invisible Tears

Published by Rodrick Bates on


Sometimes the pain could hurt so much that you can’t even cry, but just because the tears aren’t seen doesn’t mean they’re not inside. It’s like we’re hurting and searching for the one who cries, but we never find that person when no tears fall from our eyes. The absence of a tear is no implication of what’s inside. When the pain can’t be seen, it’s often misclassified. To the world it appears as though we hide our pain by refraining our own tears, but a dry cheek doesn’t mean we hide the way we feel. The eyes may show no feeling. Not even a teardrop. Some tears never reach the surface when they’re soaked up by hearts. Some tears are invisible but the pain feels the same. Just because tears can’t be seen doesn’t mean there isn’t rain.
