Stopping The Tears

They will come!
Did I open the door?
I never desired them
or asked for them to come along
but in they slid
and now
I'm trying to stop any more
from entering.
I do not want a flood!
It's quite all right
if I'm happy,
they are welcome to come
as they make no mess
at times like that
my foundations do not shake
no doors are rattled
and neither does a flood arrive.
So, it's the flooding
that causes
an increase in pain
that rarely brings cleansing
in its wake
but rather creates
a sickening, pounding
head ache
