The Four Tears - Poem by Oche Echoda James

at a silver shore like a paradise
tears of fears filled my golden eyes
even as reflections rise and fall
so tears dropped like a waterfall
just like a tree with falling leaves
so the tears faded my griefs
but as it dried off
I remembered another past love
as Adam was never lonely
so she promised to love me only
but she never showed up at the alter
as thoughts of her triggered eyes water
but the tears helped to control my trust
and emotions hardened like the earth's crust.
As tears glands became a drying lake
so it began to ache
as memories of past mistakes made me cried
couldn't stop it, though I tried
but the tears washed the eye balls
clean and bright like a crystal ball
though she called him her cousin
but I realized that he wasn't
but the invisible tears proved the bible that the heart of man is.....
