Refugee Stress

I cry like a refugee.

If you watch me closely
these moments would seem random.

My eyes tears-up, and
speech is briefly impaired
as I stifle vocal symptoms
usually with success.

The phenomenon is largely internal
occurs several times a week
and anything could trigger it
can't see it coming
because there is no obvious causal link
until it occurs
even then it doesn't always make sense.

Working theory:
Symptom of too much stress experienced for too long
too much control of thought and emotions
too much change too fast
its like leakage
stress fractures in the hull
need to be taken out of service
for some repairs and
fresh paint.
