Tears In A Jar


Saved up in a bottle are all the tears I've cried, ever since you went away-
behind bars you now reside
making the same mistakes that we tried so hard to avoid
now leaves us in the same sorrow-
your back in jail, and Im alone on the streets, broke and unemployed
you know ill wait forever to once again feel your embrace
But with you in there and I'm alone, I feel I'm being erased
forever holds the future, the present seems so frozen
without you by my side, I'm dying a slow death of love sick poison
every night I cry when I fall asleep alone
until the moment we meet again, my life has been postponed
hearing all the sappy songs on the radio at night,
I reminisce of times you caressed my body and how you felt inside
The more I write the more i think, the more i think the more i hurt,
please come back and break this curse
my bleeding heart is scabbed and scarred, Im saving all my love for you, with tears in a jar.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
