Black tears for you


I cried black tears

soul tears, last night.

Your face was gone,

I could not recall it

The twinkle of your eye,

once part of me:


The taste of your honey lips,

no longer on mine.

The black tears ran down

my face,

tried to comfort my

hopeless heart

tried to fill the half

that died with you.

It was not sufficient.

You were the one who

taught me to

live, to cry, to breath.

All gentle thoughts gone,

black tears were all I could


My black tears dried up

I dried up.
