Dim and dark
on sunken wings
the melting glow
of tears on skin
and dint of pressure
grasping spare
and turning raw
those gaping eyes
stinging the sight
of what is right in front of us.

This is very good. Could have been a bit longer, maybe...? Either way, I'll give it an 8/10

What you wrote was sincere... great and moving. I understand what you mean about it not being a negative piece. Sometimes it is good to cry, to let out all of your bottled emotions and I think your poem really proves this.... Excelent. Keep writing... :)

I like this, I'm not one to judge or criticise but it's been the shortest and best thing I've read in a really long time. Keep writing and I'll keep reading.

About the note you wrote, I find crying as a sense of renewal as well. This is a beautiful poem- so completely accurate.

I love it dear. It has its own.. personal charm, let's say?
The title is what caught my eye. "The Color of Crying" very unique and its quite attetion grabbing if I do say so myself. Wonderful word usage. I love it. Nothing more to be said. :) I'll look forward to hear more from you.

Wow. It's brief and straight to the point but makes so much sense at the same time.
