*I Will Cry*

If this world really mattered,
Why does it bleed?

I could tell you how much I love you,
But, that will never heal the pain.
I am never at peace.
Every day I cry for grace. 
Every day my tears engrave a large hole.
A rich perfume redolent of rain- 
-the only stain in my soul.

What has become of the sun?
Where have all the stars gone?

I am a sinner! 
A tapper on the roof,
I fell without angel wings!
A small ripple that splashed into the pavement crack.
I couldn't be saved!

I am a lonely bard
I have no song to sing.
This empty ballad is my home.
A feathers against the dying wind- 
-my only expression.

I will cry'
Raindrops from the sky.
Tears from a simple narrow-minded girl,
Water wept into this sorrowful world.

I will cry’
A view you can’t erase,
A window you can’t shut; 
Tears you can't brush.

I will cry'
A river that flows into the night of days.

I will cry' 
like a child, and nobody can take that away.

I will cry- once more...
No one will ever care, 
That I cried!

PS..... Please remember the smell of earth after rain.

    Hi Linda, so much hurt little one. Cry, thee is always someone somewhere who will take your hand, dry away the tears and give comfort. This is the way of the real human Soul. You will never know what it is to fall from Heaven's grace. Another inspired yet sorrowful piece from your golden pen. The rain does fall and watches the earth clean, your tears fall and wash the heart clean to begin again. Join me in looking to the sun each day. Have a good day. Catch you later. Yours always....MIKE.

Beautiful!...Thank you so much for the nice comments! :)
