Author: Shiloh


Sometimes called memories,
sometimes called weakness,
sometimes called beautiful.
clearing the mind,
closing the wounds of the heart,
blocking off the sadness.
Tears are so much,
and they can do so much.
Of all the displays of emotion,
they are, perhaps, the strongest.

I believe that most poems are written with the tears of a poets heart whether they be sadness. happiness, memories or dreams.

I definitely agree they are very cleansing.
