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 a beautiful poem... And what you said about it in the green quotations really does help the poem make more sense and see  the positive side of the poem! I liked reading it! keep up the good work!

Wow, a lot of people really like your poem! So few use of words and yet hundreds were written because of it! The title is cute, in fact, that's what made me click on it to stop and read it! It was definitly worth the read!
