Drowning In Tears Of Sorrow Poem by Alicia Meyers

Drowning In Tears Of Sorrow

Rating: 5.0

Slipping away,
Drowning in tears of sorrow,
Laughing all day,
Until the end of tomorrows.

Crying alone,
Laughing with friends,
On a broken road,
Again and again.

Blames nothing but her own,
Cries herself to sleep,
With a horrible moan,
As she waits she counts sheep.

No one knows about this girl,
What world she lives on,
And how her story goes in this world,
Or what she's done.

She keeps her mouth shut,
And opens it when asked,
Some call her a mut,
Or a liar who's masked.

And once she gets home,
Her mom throws a fit,
She feels so alone,
As her mom beats her to bits.

Her dad died from a crash,
Her mom is the only one who she knows,
Her whole life is a mash,
As she never tells anyone what happens in her home.

Her friends are always with her,
Through thick and thin,
But she never tells them she's hurt,
Through her skin.

As each day goes by,
Life is the same,
She slowly dies,
And she believes she's the one to blame.

One day she's really hurt,
She finally died,
And takes away what her mother took from her,
And slowly cried.

But she's in a better place,
Where she's no longer hurt,
With God's grace,
As he explains he loves her.

A brave girl crying alone but laughing with friends! When she died she took away what her mother had taken from her. Is it 'affection'? A calm, pathetic atmosphere the lines(words) make! A touching poem this is!
