you can see her tears

February 10, 2008
By TeraLie Jones, Lowell, OR

you can see her tears,
you can see her cry.

what you do not see,
is that she may die

not only of heartbreak
but because of her broken veins,

you cant see everyone who is broken, they say they are fine,

what you can not belive,
is there every line.

no matter how emotional
there will always be tears,

some may not be seen,
some come within fears.

but no matter how broken,
no matter how far.

there is always a story
behind every kind of scar.

the deeper they get,
the stronger the cut.

so stop not beliving,
and ignoring.

no mater who they are.

if you listen real close,
the truth is never too far.

the scars tell a story.

a story of how beliving saved the life of a cutter,
the life of a person who's scars show more than a mutter,

you can see her tears,
you can see her cry.

but that you may not know..
is that you saved a life.

Life is perfect until you sit back and realize how boring it is without risks.

Simple and understandable and relatable-at least to me.

Is this based on a real experience? I'm just curious.

hi teralie! i really like the way you space out your poem(s)...it's as if it gives us (the audience) more time to comprehend in a deeper fashion the things you say. in line 22 and 28, do you mean to say "believing" instead of "beliving"? i also like how you take the beginning, and repeat it in the end, only it's slightly different. good job!
