Drop by Drop

Written by: Sharon Tideswell

Tears falling…
drop 
by 
drop,
drumming steady 
like echoing heartbeats, 
empty and void.
Tiredness grows now where once flourished love. 
Memories and heartaches past, merge 
to form scars
...weeping
scars form to merge
past heartaches and memories.
Love flourished once where now grows tiredness;
void and empty heartbeats 
echoing
like steady drumming,
drop 
by 
drop
…falling tears.
