A Tear


I cannot remember what we fought about…
I hope it was important
I can’t remember why you made me cry…
I hope you had a reason

From the depths of dark, unknown bowels
Of misconstrued and messed up emotions
Travels a solitary tear…
Carrying the burden of my sorrows

I seek solace from a friend…
Hundreds of miles away
Finding warmth from a hug
By simply reading the syllables

And, a lonely tear…
Makes its journey to the threshold of my eyes…
While, I search…
I search for an answer to the elusive why…

And, you remain…
In the sounds of silence
And, forgotten lyrics of oft-heard songs…
While, the heavy tear dries itself on my cheeks

this verse resonates with me more than anything, but I feel like you might know this just by reading my blog. Beautiful writing. I love your depth.

much love,

Honeybee said...

the resonance of heavy tears scale more distances than are apt... perhaps the friend you seek solace from is on search of a viable destination too...

love the way u write ritzi.. the strength of a poet is in his ability to make his reader feel "this one talks to me"..................

Reminds me of lives I left behind....
It is beautiful...simple, gentle.. and genuinely felt...and its power is seen by the hearts it has connected...Love it...keep writing
