I’ve heard it said that tears taste like the ocean, and what an elegant way to hide sadness that is. Compare my despair to something beautiful and vast; something I can get lost in. Drown in. Pretend that my eyes are leaking into the Pacific; adding to that cosmic expanse of blue, accumulating into something people admire and wonder about, instead of just pity. Let me imagine that crying is, in fact, a beautiful addition to our planet. That my tears are just a small fragment of a wave, instead of just proof of my weakness.I’ve heard it said that tears taste like the ocean, and if the alternative is to just taste tears, than I’d rather drown in something beautiful."
