crocodile tears

these tears aren’t real.

or, technically, they are,
but they’re not sincere. 
after a year, they’ve lost
their sincerity.

they’re a symbol.

something lost, something
not gained.
they demonstrate nostalgia, a
misguided sense of loyalty.

they’re out of place.

it’s been a year;
they have no place here, except for
a dulled memory.
it’s time to let go and move on.
