Tears
Rolling down my cheeks
Like lava
Rolling down the side of the volcano
Searing away the flesh
With every drop
Eating away
At my soul

Victim?
Of perpetrator?
Predator?
Or prey?

Life
Complicated journey
Never knowing what’s going to happen
Next

Never saw this coming
Hit me like a semi-truck
My tears
Only thing to make me feel better

Thank you! I wrote this one for a creative writing class, and the challenge was to come up with a good simile or metaphor.
