My Empty Tear Box

Deep inside

Deep inside my left ventricle
I hide my tear box

I know

I know that tears live in my eyes
But these are special tears that I stow away in safety

This box

This box opens mostly involuntarily -
Opening and closing to a command my ears do not hear

So quiet

So quiet is this box in its opening and closing
I sometimes forget it beats deep within me

Slowly emptying

Slowly emptying its insides inside me
My box steadily becomes more empty

This box

This box of tears- salty, stale
Is mine and mine only
