when i cry

Nature calls from under bush. Rain floods from the sky. Wet grass soaks my feet. Wind carry me as the cold freezes me to the bone. Branches scratch my limbs. Thorns pearce my flesh. Mountains bang against my knees. When i cry. When i cry angels hear my pain. Foodless stomach, sleepless eyes. Womanless groin Angels hear when i cry. Dry thoart, dry tears, cracked lips, crying spoiled baby sounds. Head on the ground Angels hear when i cry.
