Black Tears

October 19, 2007
By Khalil Kassam, Richmond, ZZ

Screaming, to the world that wouldn’t answer
Crying, to see you one more time
Inside of me, I’m broken,
There is nothing left to hide

Streams of black tears
drip down my heart.

I smile, when I see your face.
I bleed, when I caress your lips
I quiver, when you’re not there

Screaming, for your soothing touch
Crying, for your motherly care
Inside of me, I’m fading
You leave me here in despair

And still,
Streams of black tears
Serenade my heart
As it slowly calms to stop
