Can You Spare A Teardrop

I cried for so long, so many nights,
and now no more tears can drop,
I'm all out, do you have some to spare,
cause you know once I start, I can't stop.

I go on for days with a heavy heart,
no tears fall, though inside I'm crying,
I feel empty, hollow, dark inside,
a soul dead, and still is dying.

Can I fill a bucket from your well,
the sun came out, dried up my rain,
I'll take them carefully, try not to spill,
cause I've got a need to ease the pain.

That feeling of washing away the sorrow,
with trickling tear-water, clear and cool,
soothes the soul, relaxes the ache,
can I dive right into your swimming pool?

I need to pour out your flowing brook,
to keep me crying a river for today,
I want to hold despair in my hands,
please let this melancholy feeling stay.

    Oh Kelly I can relate to that, like you I had a stressfull year about 9 years ago and it went on for a whole year and yes most of that year I spent crying, now funny enough I find it quite hard to cry, so I do hope you get over whatever stressed you and keep writing these great poems, take care my friend.............Vera...........

    A sad, lovely write, Kelly. Seems the sadder the theme, the more the muse is able to give you the inspiration to let the words flow from your pen in increasing beauty. Hope it's based on fiction, and not a true story. Hugs and smiles. :D Kim

    Melancholic moods expressed in an artsy lyrical way. Sadness employed and channelled into creativity is a commendable effort here. Kudos! Nice to read u again.

    I guess we can all relate to the feeling of utter despair Kelly I know I can -' I go on for days with a heavy heart, no tears fall, though inside I'm crying, I feel empty, hollow, dark inside, a soul dead, and still is dying'. What powerful words my friend :-) Hugs jan xx 7 xx
