Tear 

Found this beautiful composition on Alison’s blog

It touched my heart deeply somewhere… Here it goes…

And silently, I cry all by myself
For hurt that you have taught me not to hide
The way such prose can quickly break the shelf
Upon where all my deepest fears reside
My thoughts of happiness can’t stop my heart
From beating out of this destructive place
I stop this moment, unable to start
And end our words without leaving a trace
Of sorrow on your inattentive sense
Tomorrow will come quickly if I pray
Your mind distracted will not take offense
If I dismiss it for another day
I can’t deny the perfect symmetry
Of soothing, tender words not meant for me
