    nothing left to say...

    tired teardrop trailing
    would you gently wipe away
    life is so damned hard sometimes
    there's nothing else to say

    let silenced lips communicate
    all that really matters
    sometimes I feel so all alone
    wrecked and kind of shattered

    a lifetime of pretending
    that I never need a thing
    lessons in futility
    how wickedly they sting

    with every ounce of courage
    I somehow still possess
    I'm telling you I love you
    and I ache for your caress

    what it is or what it's not
    whatever we will be
    I wish that you were here right now
    making love to me

    tired teardrops trailing
    no one ever wipes away
    waiting for you is hard sometimes
    what else can I say

    Brought a tear to my eye and a lump in my throat. My husband has been either in the military or a driver for many years and the waiting is the worst. I really could relate. Write on..........Tlady

    Wow, I sense the screaming siren of the lady tied to the front of the viking ship in Homer Iliad's .. The Oddysey. Highly Impressive!

    Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
