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.

Yor poem is great. although there are not many words it has alot of emotion. I've been through many difficult times in my life and i still cry constantly. thats why i turned to poetry.

Great poem! It's so descriptive and I love the way it's constructed together! And your purpose for writing this poem makes it seem even more real. Good job.=)

Please come view/rate/comment my work, but start from the bottom, that's where the best is.=)

I've recently come out of a somewhat slump in my life and this poem truly speaks to me. It's absolutely beautiful and every line made me go ''yes that's exactly what it's like" Very well done. 5 stars
