Precious Tears

They speak of you

I seal eyes in glue

So none sees you there

And how much I still care

I seal the eyes scared of storms about to blow;

Loosing chains I chain my tears with once they grow

For I promised once never to set any free

Scared I am of how it’ll be;

Aging on its way down

On lips waits for her death crown

“Tears falling as Rain” painting by Denton Lund

No tear will die

I’ll never give up; I’ll say no goodbye

My tears are precious

Though for you they were suspicious

You left; they stayed

Beats in between strayed

They’re all I could preserve from your memory

I know they’ll live beyond my century

You wanted me over “Black’s white” to sign

I wanted to steal for you the sunshine

I gifted you a holy flower

You pushed me from the highest tower

You planted fears over years

Watered wounds and reaped tears

I fell in you and couldn’t after stop;

Your venom in my veins till the last drop

  1. I put in articial tears,
    I’ve shed the real throughout my years
    Can’t cry no more, but still feel pain
    for men who didn’t deserve my rain.

    Your poem has inspired me to remember Mira, how grateful I am for your being Aloha

"Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought & the thought has found its words"; I know mine's make no sun shines, but....YOU can tell better!
