Tears are the worst companions... They reveal out your pain to the entire world.

The Definition of my Tears

The poisonous snake as traces its way,
Flow down the same way tears in me.
That drop of water burns my face like an acid,
Still no sorrow I depict, my face to be placid.

Like someone knocks on my door with a slaughter,
Telling to God, \"She deserves it... your daughter!\".
And my Lord Himself turns away His eyes,
Cause He can't witness my 'glorious' deathly demise.

My hands folded to pray,
Lips cluttering, so impossible to say.
I stand before my own death,
Not to pray him to go, but beg him to stop my breath.

Urge, I wish it could ne'er be for me to deviate,
But it's the end only, on which I meditate.
They gracefully fall on pages like pearl,
Just to burn a hole, remnant to curl.

How do they find a cave in my eyes,
Homeless they will become after my demise.
So, they flow and drain for freedom they endeavor,
Ere, I cruelly shut their house forever.

Why they tease me, travelling the route of my nose and my lips,
The harbinger of grief, gift me sorrow with grip.
To halt their victorious pilgrimage off my face,
I barricade their way with my hand with a grace.

But do their evilness ever comes to an end?

I never thought of tears as evil. People need to cry. It's healthier than to not. But liked your rhyme!

Yeah your perspective is good too. Though most people hide their tears, pain and it's for them( including me) thnx again for reading :-)

Reading a couple of your poems and now this one, one thing that I've definitely found out is that- you are an AMAZING WRITER!!! You capture the essence of the scene so well and create wonderful imagery... good rhyming too!
Now that's how it exactly feels when you cry... somehow all the bad memories come rushing into your mind! :( but that's how it is... great work adya- plain amazing!!! :)

Thanks, friend. I write most of my poems to express myself. It's my passion, not a hobby. So, I wrote this in my bad days.... And I really hope that nooooo bad days come to you ever(so that you can't relate with this :-)) thanks again. Love

Hi Adya, another excellent write from your golden pen. Let the emotion flow from your pen. Tears are my friends, they show that feeling still dwells within me. Your Definition of Tears is a write that comes from deep within the Soul. It amazes me the way you can tap into feelings and bring them out of the reader Adya. May your pen ever run gold and the Soul ever sing.....Vladislav.
