Death Of A Tear...... Poem by karen sinclair

Death Of A Tear......

Rating: 4.9

The fresh tear, heavy with meaning and purpose
Travels southbound upon my warm skin.
Full of reason and pain, I watch
Distracted by it's beauty
Questioning its lifespan as I do the life in my love

First it rushes with gusto, confidence
Only to slow eventually at an undefined moment
For no real reason, with no apparent explanation
(as in my love) It petered to a dribble
And unaware of it's poignance

It died......


Excellent poem. Very moving.

A beautiful and emotional poem with feelings that seem to tighten the throat in an agonising grip.

Teardrops are to be treasured as is this poem depicting your emotion and your broken heart for without teardrops how would we release the pain, that awful, aching, pain.
