Tears

Beads of warm salt water
Running down my cheeks
Eyes red
Lids drooping
Mascara streaks
Reminders of past beauty
All washed away
Throat closes up
Head pounding
Grief drowns my heart
Falling into darkness
Lost and confused
Beads of warm salt water
Running down my cheeks
Tears

Even though it has got no rhyming scheme , it goes so smoothly through. and I really like the lines "Mascara streaks" and "grief drowns my heart"....Everything a tear is a consequence of. Well put.
