Inside Tears
Author: Shorty


Inside tears from way down deep
Drawn up from a pit of sorrow hidden before
Deep, cold well that brings tears to the surface
Of fears and misery not noticed before
But now they take their sweet revenge for being kept in the dark
Now the light is all they’ll see
Tears built up from years before and holding them in
Fears never faced
Truths never admitted
With these tears the grief is shared
Everyone watching her knows they just want to cry too
Because everybody has problems and mistakes that they’ve made
Tears that they’ve kept hostage
It’s enough to make you scream
These inside tears bring truths to light
Fears out of the shadows
And happiness,
Because being with someone in the light is better than being alone in the dark

Poetry doesn't have to rhyme to have meanin'

Hi Shorty , on the contrary, i think this was Absolutely Magnificent ! Poetry only becomes borin' when one caint connect to it..once you focus on it as you read it you may be able to see the meanin' of it, like a paintin' and understand it..
as i see it, to really appreciate Poetry.. you have to become A PART of it not APART from it , this was excellent, it had great meanin'. POETRY doesn't have to rhyme , poetry comes from ones Heart..ones Bein'...deep down from ones Soul..keep pennin' more great writes..

you write from your heart

My poems must be boring too then ,My writings never rhyme I write what I'm thinking or feeling and my feelings have no rhyming. As long as you write what you feel, it's good. I liked it too.
