A Shower Of Tears Poem by Freeyad Ibrahim

A Shower Of Tears

Rating: 5.0

By Freeyad Ibrahim

If you ask me why I eat little
If you knew the reason
You would have never asked me why
Cause I eat no food but Grief
Not a grief of treason
But the agony of separation
Without giving reason
My cold tears are pouring down
in the summer season
If you ask me why I drink no water
I drink well
But sour bitter tears
The torment of unanswered love
A single soul never bears
Don't look at the clearing sky
no lightening but a burning eye
no thunder but a rising sigh
In separation time
It showers not in the form of rain
But the heart bathes
in a shower of tears!

The agony of unrequited love is so aptly and powerfully expressed here. A lot of people can relate to it I bet.
