Tear Drop

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
It crawls down your red rosy cheeks,
leaving a wet slime mark,
As the wet glowing tear drop evaporates...
So does your secret...

Every tear drop comes down for a reason,
Whether it represents someone no longer with you,
Or represents the betrayal of a friend...
Tear drops come down for a reason

Tears feel your pain,
because if the tear wouldn't,
it would not evaporate...
which is exactly what you want to do...

Disappear

A tear drop,
Represents you...
When it's the most joyful moment,
or the most horrific...
A tear drop...is you.

This was really deep and inspiring. I liked it a lot. Please rate and comment on some of my stuff as well. Particularly "Just a Guy". I have other stuff as well. I'm more than happy to rate and comment on yours as well. Just say the word. :)

i really like the end of this poem. I have to admit that the beginning is a little weak but hte ending is perfect!
It sort of reminded of that Emily Dickinson poem "Parting"
I dont know why it just did.
Nice job!
