    Needless Tears

    When inside myself I look
    Much different than an open book
    where words express a thoughtful scene
    the words in me are painful screams
    unlike a placid, crystal lake
    my thoughts are snarled, full of ache
    Expression haunts me
    when I speak
    the meaning lost
    from skills so weak
    relationships begin to crumble
    frustration trips me so I stumble
    with heavy soul from desperate fears
    so needless now my falling tears

    This is a wonderful poem. It drew me in from the very beginning. I think that almost anyone could really relate with this. Very well put!

    I would be a millionaire right now if I could count all my tears and your tears of life. Often and sadly it is a shame that i have cried practically all of my life but it brings so much strength and healing afterwards. Wonderful poem and it is such a reality. http://alejabennett.net84.net

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
