Salt Water Veins

I bleed salt water.
A life full of swallowed words
silent fear
self-inflicted anger
turned my blood to tears.
They pulse
insistent
behind my eyes
pressure against my brain
always just this side of a headache.
No matter how many tear drops run down my face
it is never enough.
I am not sad.
I am overcome
with lives that could have been.
