Tears - Poem by kibrom habtu

Of your whispering eyes

Voiceless tears falling
Where the thick dark air rashes in

Where the cold wind and breathe on my skin

Where the red quiet moon appears shadow less

Under the light we kissed in every passing silence tears

Where our hands touched, unshaken

My soreness deepened

A pang of sorrow it lies

But peerless and hating strife feeling

Fearsome days might I fear

But I used to think I would die

There hopelessly on the green grass I lie

To fare the uncounted dreams I dreamed

And a desolate crib I lived

Longing to taste it

And to ease the dark fading

Moments may unravel

Nights may bright

If only beauty phase as it is at night

The smell of your skin

Defeats the sadness as u sleep

I’ll keep u worm

Until death tire us apart

Of your tipsy eyes,

Yet, it is Wet and deep

But u may

my sweet, my soul, my heart

    accepting that the love you once had and enjoyed so won't have you anymore is so hard. you feel hopeless and unloved and the pain consumes your every piece of joy. this is pain that we all never trully recover from but wer need because it teaches us alot about ourselves and helps us value others more

    take heart. it will pass

    This style of composition, of short sentences favours the rhythm, and emotional content, and flows. (Report) Reply

    Hope will defeat all the sadness and wish for the better night to compose your strength. May bright day lights and family keep your faith deeper and sharper.
    Well done>

    Sadness with a glimpse of hope and desire. By the way...why so sad? (Report) Reply
