Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Tears Of Love


Pick your battles
Accept your demise
Who, hoot by and by
Yes it is dark in your disguise

Love's feathers flutter down on your dreams
And whys
And love gutters away when
it rains tears

Tears are the emptying of dreams
That release of all the schemes
That moisten the cheeks of love

Cry
Cry again
Cry once more again
Until there is no more room for sadness
Inside for your tears

Let me kiss your tears away
As I lay on top of you
And together we know our passions play
Listen to my lips, kiss, and another tear
I take away

    A beautiful poem about the courage and patience...A call never give up and face...In fact poets call is pain and agony can become the arms and dying dream will never ever be dying but a candle of love can be seen all around....thank you (Report) Reply

    tears carry the salt from the body
    as a channel, take along all the emotions
    so well kept and hidden.

    like Aphrodite said, Love without tears isn't a real love
    Love is a struggle, sacrifice, and tears that represent all
    your poetry is a reflection of it with different ways
