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.

Writing about a situation that everyone can relate to in some way is the sign of a real poet. I loved this. Such a perfect description. Just wow.

Instead of sit here and tell you about how this poem has affected me and how crying is so easy to relate with, I'll tell you that this was a small work of genius. I can relate to it, and so can many other people, and that's what makes a great author or poet. Keep writing, and I'll keep reading.

There so many emotions when crying, I it that love someone wrote about it. Not the emotions but the colors in it.
