My Shattered Tears

My shattered tears cuts at my moment,
still bleeding from my hurt,
searching for the canvas of my tears.

The trampling of my shadow darkens my step, 
Falls from my side curled in a black corner, 
watching from the distance.

I feel my honesty slowing me down,
while I walk to my finish. 
My tears are the cheating sequence of
my sweat and my sweat is the 
driven wetness of my honesty.

Where is the pain? 
Why can't I feel you? 
Where have you gone?

Where can I go to dry my tears 
and look for 
the next day?

    Sean, it's sad to feel like this. I am amazed how well you painted the cutting and dried up tears image. This is very deep, a painful way to feel. I very much hope the next day was brighter.... :) Thank you for sharing...Linda

    Another spectacular write. I would much sooner get there a little slower. Honesty is the way to go.

    Very good write, you'll always have a shoulder to cry on, and in the end all the tears you've gone through will be nothing compared to the happiness you soon will get. Keep writing :)
