Stone Tears

June 4, 2008
By Miranda McCullough, Henderson, NV

As she lies down I walk away without shedding a tear. Tears become stones in my eyes. A nuisance, a pain.
Why is it that ignorance always ends in fear?
The vacuum sings and is cut off short.
I pretend I don't know what is happening...
Trust me...
I do
The tar on my bare feet.
Burning with pleasure.
Dad is there. I lie.
She didn't need him, I did.
Tears become stones in my eyes.
A nuisance, a pain.
