In this poem, I seek to preserve the emotions generated by a painful break up.


Ah, My Tears!
Flow! Flow! Flow unhindered!
Run your course along the mounds of my swollen cheek
Rinse away the toxins stockpiled in my skull
Add taste to me by your salty content
Let your fall break my brokenness
That I may find healing

Ah, Pain!
Carve it deep on my heart
That I may never forget
Narrow my eyes
That my vision may be sharpened

Ah, emotions!
Bleed! Bleed!
That Life may flow out of me

And pulse in my words
