Whitnelle...

There is beauty in allowing yourself
to be open to the pain of tears...

Tears

Heart is full
of emotions

words of woe
from another
crying tears
lost is her sight
her world is dark - heart is full

Emotions
tears that stream
mind confused
her shivers crawl
slowly creep
one of cold form
eyes are still from - emotions

Words of woe
she shifts her thought
controlling
her flow of tears
dries her stains
regains the strength
shuts out devil - words of woe

Another
thought becomes real
weakness fads
decisions made
tears now dry
spirit will soar
heart is full for - another

- Rhoda Galgiani
