Just because her eyes don't tear doesn't mean her heart doesn't cry. And just because she comes off strong, doesn't mean there's nothing wrong






-Author Unknown


All but a breath,
soft tears and sound,
nigh, though by fear,
sleep be unfound.

Upon a bed, sweet ice;
cold in despair,
young voices unbroken,
hope through a prayer.

False beauty, and pain,
in the night alone,
all but told lies,
and truth be unknown.

Amid the darkness
thoughts claim flight,
upon a pillow rest,
finding no peace tonight.

This is really beautiful and a great example of how rhyming can be used correctly and beautifully in order to help the flow and have more of an emotional punch. I really enjoyed this, very unique style.

If you ever get the opportunity, check out my work! Thanks!
