Bare honesty

I want to scream all my truths from the top of my lungs
I want to feel the pain burn my veins as I let the valve go
I want to drown in my tears until I am no longer water
I want to find the salt lake reservoirs of my cheeks returned.

My eyes show a certain level of beauty when they have expelled my sorrow
Crystals reflecting back such darkness they cannot help but shine
In those few moments if you took the time to look beyond my face
My soul is laid bare and dressed ready for my burial.

I want to scream all my truths from the top of my lungs
I want to feel the pain burn my veins as I let the valve go
I want to drown in my tears until I am no longer water
I want to find the salt lake reservoirs of my cheeks returned.
