Essentially so

Should i apologize
for the tears that burn behind my eyes,
when the dreams bring
strange screams to the surface
like bloated corpses floating
up against the inches-thick ice in a lake, clicking
their blunted fingers underneath
the roughness, not waiting till
it would get warmer, to be
free of the confines, to let things
Go. Should i apologize
for the tears and silence
in my eyes, when the dead
patrol my nights disguised
as memories, quietly sipping
at my essence, depressed and depressing.
Should I apologize
for my eyes.
