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.

Very short but expressive. You got a message through with writing only a few words. Great job.

THe description is great i can understand how you see crying. I have been through hard times as well and crying helps and i quote you "renew and clear my vision".
