Rain - Poem by Lipstick Casanova

A single tear is born
From the corner of my eye,
Conceived in my mind, and bred,
To thoughts once known and gone.

Suspended in flight,
I watched it fall,
As everything around me,
One day, must fall.

I looked upward,
Toward the sky for help,
But the very heavens above didn't know,
For they just cried with me.

And my vision did blur and fell,
Toward the ground,
To watch the death of my lonely tear,
And it did mix, with the tears of millions -
Others that have asked the same.

    Quite touching. Sometimes pain doesn't end after crying. But like a dormant volcano. Good write! (Report) Reply
