A Single Confused Tear

10 Aug

A single confused tear
Through the lashes
To roll down a cheek
Reflecting the world
In its lonely place
Not comforted by company
That would signal no comfort

But it stays alone
One broke through the barrier
The blockade breached
The barricade not an island
The single tear
Barely a drop in an ocean
Drifting away from safety
To the promise of a rescue
Towards dry land

    Nice. So often poets write about crying without focusing on the tears themselves. You do both and still reflect the crier’s mood. =)
