Molten glass

Molten glass
Bursts forth
Like lava erupting from
The bowels of this earth

Wanting to simply break free

It has been held within
For too long
Facing a building pressure
Deep within
Churning turmoil seeking a fissure
Deep within
The surface of apparent calm

It had to break free
It had no choice
Holding it
Deep within
Only leads to
A horrific implosion

Bursting forth
With a relieving mystique
It transforms instantly
Into a cold dampness
Across my cheek

Tears of sorrow
Tears of pain
A new tomorrow,
Tears of laughter
Tears of gratitude, perhaps

Never in vain
