who needs tears

2:27 am

awake staring out the window

black and blue trees dancing with the wind

memories are not enough

lack of you

wounds deeper than any knife

black and blue trees dancing with the wind

moon dusted

who needs tears

they’re only salt water

black and blue trees dancing with the wind

while I howl songs of  hearts breakings to the moon

under falling leaves

    Hi Eva…such a melancholy poem, beautiful but also a bit sad. Are you working on your poetry more these days?

      Hello Al. Some poetry amidst other things. Hope the river is treating you well. Never a shortage of creative material, is there?

    pain and heartbreak, with tears falling like leaves… but the tears have their purpose…and soothe after a while. A sombre but wonderful poem Eva… xPenx
