O' Salty tear, a mere clear drop that you are
You've emerged for a million different reasons
many of which only the shedder knows
for you've emerged in all seasons.
The season of sadness or reason of joy
the tears of grief and the tears of joy
You and your unalloyed saline taste
thou art' but an emotional waste.
O'Salty tear each time you drop into oblivion
why not vanish away with your shedder's grief?
I tell you O' tear if you're to take my opinion
oughtn't you grant your shedder full relief?
Ah but thou art' a ceaseless ocean in reserve and store
No one can be sure, he'll cry no more
When you trickle down those sad upturned lips
we know destiny perhaps made those painful slips!
You are the raindrops of a grief-clouded heart
You do emerge when two lovers have to part
Help your shedder turn over a new leaf
so you're associated less with grief.
I've watched many a jilted lover
weep all alone by the sea-side most sorrowfully
and watched tears glide down noses or pince-nez
as their salty tears merged into the salty sea.
O' Salty tear but it's time you learnt to wash away
all and any poignancy from your shedder's heart
and be such a buddy who never wishes to meet again
the tearful shedder from whom you depart!
'Ah but thou art' a ceaseless ocean in reserve and store' So true! We do not know where this ocean hides and we cannot predict when like a reservoir let loose, it will explode! Ther are so many devices to predict a Tsunami or a cyclone! But so far no device has been invented to tell exactly when one is going to break into tears! Enjoyed this poem on the chemistry of salty tears!
very well written....powerful imagery love the ending! and be such a buddy who never wishes to meet again the tearful shedder from whom you depart!
joy and grief two kinds of dirt that comes out from the heart, cleaning device those two and tears a sludge...well writ and rhymed thank
great write sis. mature and deep feelings expressed.
It is a great ode to salty tears. Deep and vivid. Powerful expression. When tears will come and will emerge with the salty sea no one can say certainly. You have inscribed here touchingly... Ah but thou art' a ceaseless ocean in reserve and store No one can be sure, he'll cry no more When you trickle down those sad upturned lips we know destiny perhaps made those painful slips! Thanks for sharing.
