Tears roll out of my eyes,
and fall upon the brown earth,
Mine tears as blue as ocean skies.
Tears stream down my cheeks,
over each dimple,
and crash at my feet.
The journey of a tear,
slow but fast paced,
but they live without fear.
They roll out of my eyes,
rocket down my pale face,
falling, crashing, they die.
Oh why must they die,
the death of a tear is sad,
if only they could fly.
They would soar off my face,
and glide into the air,
at such breathtaking pace.
Things that leave my eye,
no hope for the poor little tear,
but all good things die

This poem was inspired by my crying over the thought of losing my best friend to cancer. She means the world to me and I love her

Logic is not flawless

That's... sad. But in a way, hopeful. As long as one doesn't have to cry, one doesn't have to kill tears. Beautiful, and keep up the good work!

I am like a star burst. A juicy contradiction. I'm hard to figure out, but when you get to my center, your suprised! It's not what you thought it would be, huh.

Beautifully communicated! great job and keep writing its a great way to document your emotions and keep them leveled.
