room with a view

i finally understand

why is it i find it so easy to cry at movies

sometimes i want to cry, but cannot.

i finally understand-

it’s not that i don’t care enough

or that i care too much.

it’s just that it’s all too close.

and when you step back

and focus on someone other than yourself

(even if it is a fictional character)

sometimes that just helps you see it

for what it is.

so i can cry now,

and i have.

i have,

and i’ve stopped.

surely you and i are beyond speaking

when words are clearly not enough.
