You Can't Write a Poem About Losing a Loved One This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

May 13, 2010
The tears dry,

the puddles of moisture evaporate

A lonely wave washes over you



You realize they’re gone,

what do you do?

Then the pain returns

Gripping you

Strangling you,

until the tears return




Your face covered in saltwater

After a while the crying stops,

the ducts run dry

Your eyes sting

red as cherries

You can’t hide it,

but you try.

You will continue to try from this day on.
