dream as if you'll live forever

It’s funny how quickly tears dry
And how smooth the skin is that they leave behind

No mark to show
That after such a long time coming
They finally have arrived
And washed and cleansed
And left again

No mark to show
You’ve been there and you’ve
Survived

This is really good I like the emotion that you were able to put into a few lines. It also made me think that even though tears are easily dried up they leave behind a scar in your heart and memory; the true testimony that you "Survived" Keep writing :)
