Ugly Cry

I wish I cried gracefully
dabbing tears softly
a quiet sniffle
a gentle sob
a lone teardop streamng silently

but not me
nope, I’m an ugly crier
a snot-stained pillowcase
a pile of soggy Kleenex
much more my style

As ugly and snotty and noisy
as my crying may be
the grief behind it
is no less profound
than the gentlest sob
of a lovelier crier
bent gracefully
over the tear-stained pages
of an unfinished
handwritten
diary entry
