The Saltiest Tear

The saltiest tear
That came out of my eye
Happened when life
Made me want to end mine.

The most broken expression
On my face
Is the one I use
When I'm keeping my pace.

The unexisting heart
That's not where it should be
Ran away from abuse
It felt no need to be with me.

The one guy I trusted
HE ran away too
Just when I began to think
I'm in love with you.

The girl with the name
That's the same as her fate
Noone cares about this girl
Even if she has a clean slate.

The happy moments
She takes in to digest
She can't remember
Not those moments of pretend happiness

She says its okay
She forgives you
It's done
Does that really mean you've won?

The saltiest tear
That came out of my eye
Happened when life
Made me want to end mine.

what a wonderfully depressing, yet somehow uplifting poem. your quote has some poetic potential, too.

Keep hanging on. You've won and things always get better in the end. No matter what. Life doesn't suck all the time. Great poem, and keep writing. You have a gift that should be shared!

This is a really well written and thought out poem, and i think it helps let readers know that sometimes things can get hard but things will always get better.
