Tears by Donna J. Sanders

Tears

are a composition

of the emotions

we keep silent

They burn from agony

festering within

They ache from

broken promises and dreams

They wilt

like orchids in the dark

soaking blankets and sleeves

with empathy

There are those that seep bliss

elation and relief

whispering silent joys

Be not ashamed of these drips of life

from the valves of our soul
