Tearstained Fingers

I lay under the stage,
visible to anyone
who walks in front of it,
my head on my right elbow
and left hand.
I move my hand so I can see it
and notice
I have tearstained fingers,
for I have sobbed my heart out
under this stage.
Many people walk by
but nobody notices
the girl
with the tearstained fingers.

Hey there.
What other organizations have published you?
I'm trying to get my stuff out there, so any advice would be helpful!

I hear that. I wish you would have made this more emotional. it sounded kind of preachy. But I still liked it.
