remix/repost.. written when I was 18

One Last Tear

I lie here.
In my bed made of sorrow
In the dark….
Not to think.
Because thinking..
doesn’t work.
I lie here
until I feel a single tear…
slide ever so slowly down my cheek.
I hear it softly hit the pillow.
Feel the tear trickle down my arm..
I hear it's soft echo of death
as it hits the floor below.
A sad sound.
Because that one tear..
was once filled with a thousand
hopes and dreams.
Hopes and dreams
of the innocent.
Hopes and dreams of
what could have been.
I fall asleep to the sound
of that lonely soft tear.
Echoing in my mind.
I awake the next morning to find..
A small but painful stain..
Nothing now but an insignificant reminder
Of a lonely dried up dream.

Erica Ivory

Excellent. I love this part:
I hear it's soft echo of death
as it hits the floor below.
A sad sound.
Because that one tear..
was once filled with a thousand
hopes and dreams.

Even one tear dear Erica can help us break the dammed up emotional turmoil that goes on inside our hearts. Just one little tear can carry a flood of healing fluid or fill an ocean inside of us. When a tear dries up, hopefully it has served a noble purpose. You are with us always Erica and can shed a tear or two or more among your friends at AD. God bless you. Bill

Tears are beneficial, Erica, but so is laughter and optimism. Nice poem, nonetheless and even with . . . despair.
