Oh Weary Crier

October 15, 2011
Oh weary crier,
For why have you not cried your last tear
What pain have you felt to make you feel so low, my dear
May I be in your heart, oh tortured soul
To guide you, save you, love you, for I take no toll
Only listen, your lullaby won’t be your cries to sleep
Long ago and soon to come, precious memories for you to keep
What passion do I wish to ignite
For you to stand up with all your might

That hungry feeling

Are you seeing?
Oh weary crier,
May your last tear end tonight

This is honestly the best poem I've read. It tells a story in rhyme, and still tugs at your heart. Absolutely excellent.

This is absolutely fantabulous. It's so deep and genuine; I just love it. Great job with the rhyming and the unique format. Keep writing!

You sure about that? Because writing a poem that can keep up with the standards this one set would be mighty difficult! This is great, definitely one of the better free-verse poems that I've read on this site. It was very sweet and my favorite part was EVERTHING. It has some missing punctuation marks, some commas and question marks that should have been there. Plus we ought to complain to TI, I keep trying to give it TEN stars, but it won't let me. This must be fixed!

I love your writing voice! For why have you not... that was great. You know how people usually are more straightforward, like... "Why haven't you stopped crying?" I prefer your style in this more than the straightforward kind. This was great.
