SEVEN MILES AN HOUR

By: moonphish

Page 1, science lesson

seven miles an hour

is the speed of drops of rain
but tear drops are much slower
for they're weighted down with pain
 
it's said it's always raining
somewhere on this planet earth
and people don't stop crying
from the instant of their birth
 
tears form from blackened storm clouds
and then rise up like the tide
the taste of tears is bitter
as a drop of cyanide
 
seven miles an hour
doesn't really seem so fast
it seems it's raining harder
when the skies are overcast
 
who thought to even time them
as they floated down from space
to join the tears we're shedding
down the surface of our face
 
but looks can be deceiving
not as bad as it appears
for you will never notice
any weight in happy tears
