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 lovely poem. You're so right about crying; I'd never thought of it that way. But it's perfect. So thank you for making lfe a little simpler. I'm a big fan :)
