An Ocean Of Tears - Poem by Ruth warren

Memories flood my heart and mind,
as they extinquish all hopes and dreams;
drowning the joy I've been searching for,
of which I have never seen.

Any recollection of elation,
that I have ever had;
has dissappeared from my memories,
as a sea shell buried deep in the sand.

Dwelling within my heart and soul,
is the sorrow I feel every day;
replacing all joy I have ever known,
with guilt, heartache and shame.

All happiness I have ever encountered,
is slowly fading each day;
into an Ocean of tears that I've cried,
as the tide slowly sweeps them away.

I try to cling to the memories,
that have caused me to laugh and smile;
yet even as they slip through my fingertips,
I am thankful that I knew them for awhile.

As I sit upon the beach by the Ocean,
formed from the tears that I've cried;
I see a reflection of my sordid past,
and all I wish for is to die.
