The tears that never dried

on November 10, 2009

I always saw the image in shattered glass
The unspoken sorrow, my constant companion
The night in my life never came to pass
I wish I could find solace and peace
but the wound will never heal
I drown in my tears that never dried
longing for happiness i’ll never feel
I collect those shards in hope of repair
Alas! I only cut my heart in despair
Maybe now my soul will find freedom
beyond the fetters of body,
perhaps now the world will seem a better place
I am no more there

      I guess that’s thing about misery, its common to all ! Happiness somehow eludes universal acceptance. Maybe its too hard to find outside and we never search within.

    Very true. Songs and poetry about sorrow are more easy to relate to, than those that ooze with joy.
    Beautifully written Deborah.
