Tears in the Night

Tears in the Night

Flipping the pages, I silently cry,				
reeling from the pain of your “Dear Jane” note.					
Stifling soft sobs, I exhale a sad sigh,	
as my tears blot the hurtful words you wrote…		
but my bruised heart heals even while you gloat.

Pandita, such beautifully sad sentiments of a broken heart but your last line signals a resilient spirit... Wonderful and lovely lines of imagery throughout. Your third and fourth lines, especially, are stunning. Your last line though, is absolutely gorgeous! Enjoyed your fabulous write my friend. Hugs and love to you always!

I feel the ever presents of the evil billy goat; So when I tied him to the barn; the IRS came and took the farm: What??! Just being silly. Great job I like it. James :O

How is my friend? Been such a long time... Silent tears fall in all of our eyes, wounds always heal, unless we do not let them.. in a few words, you wrote the meaning of sadness...

Such a sad poem, Pandita; its brevity conveys a depth of emotion that belies its length. These days, I guess a note is better than a text... (at least you can tear it into little pieces or burn it - or both!!). Best wishes, John.

Hi John, thank you so much for stopping by with your kind complimentary words. I definitely agree with you that a note is better than a text in this case. In the past, before burning it, I actually held on to such a note for a while to remind myself that at the end of the day, I was better off without that individual in my life! Hugs and kindest regards. Pandita

Hi Pandita: A simple but emotional poem. Thanks also for phrasing a "dear Jane ". All you mostly hear is the Dear John: letters speaking as a guy with 3 daughters.
