A truly romantic nature see and feel beyond the normal mortal scope, and even when that lack - create romantic world itself. Sometimes a drama…

On a more prosaic level it could be a case of Lacrimal Disease, or dry eye as it is commonly known. And if he starts crying blood he really does need a doctor.

Hemorrhoids and toothaches can make you cry too.

From Wilde's short story "The Remarkable Rocket"

- Oscar Wilde’s The Remarkable Rocket could be described as a fable, namely a fictional short story in which some inanimate objects (fireworks; e.g. Squib, Roman Candle, Catherine Wheel, Bengal Light, Fire-balloon, Rocket, etc.) or creatures (animals of the swamp; e.g. Frog, Dragon-fly, White Duck, etc.) are anthropomorphized, that is to say, they are given some human qualities such as language and speech capacity. It does not seem to me that The Remarkable Rocket belongs to the literary genre referred to as “fairy tale,” -


'You had really better keep yourself dry,' said the Fire-balloon. 'That is the important thing.'

'Very important for you, I have no doubt,' answered the Rocket, 'but I shall weep if I choose;' and he actually burst into real tears, which flowed down his stick like raindrops, and nearly drowned two little beetles, who were just thinking of setting up house together, and were looking for a nice dry spot to live in.

'He must have a truly romantic nature,' said the Catharine Wheel, 'for he weeps when there is nothing at all to weep about;'
and she heaved a deep sigh, and thought about the deal box.

But the Roman Candle and the Bengal Light were quite indignant, and kept saying, 'Humbug! humbug!' at the top of their voices. They were extremely practical, and whenever they objected to anything they called it humbug.

Then the moon rose like a wonderful silver shield; and the stars began to shine, and a sound of music came from the palace.

Oscar Wilde once said, "All beautiful things make me cry." So there must be something to cry about.

So longs my heart for the Drama Queen that past the Hill of Death is gone, not even upon the tracks she left can I endure to gaze... An autumn of the past seems like today, and adds fresh dewdrops to a sleeve already drenched with tears.
