Stunning photos of tears under a microscope vary by emotion

Follow policymic

"The project, called "The Topography of Tears," captures unique moments in human experience, but there’s also a scientific reason why every tear looks so different. There are three different types of tears: basal (lubricating), reflex (responding to stimuli) and psychic (triggered by emotion). Each type of tear contains different organic substances, and the molecular makeup depends on the causative agent. For instance, emotional tears contain the neurotransmitter leucine enkephalin, a natural painkiller that the body releases to mitigate stress."

How dangerous love is, 

how quietly it moves in
and rearranges
everything we know. 

I’d offer you my world,
but you’ve already
become every part of it.

So tell me,
how do I give you 
every piece of me
without losing myself?

Perhaps this is
the true meaning of love,

the knowledge that two people
hold the power to take apart
each other’s world,
and the trust that they won’t leave
without putting everything
back where it belongs.

Date yourself. Take yourself out to eat. Don’t share your popcorn at the movies with anyone. Stroll around an art museum alone. Fall in love with canvases. Fall in love with yourself.
Fall in love with yourself! <3
