Her Tears (poem)

She bares her broken heart with passing breeze

Which tarries just to listen for a while

To bring some comfort to forgotten smile

And stroke her hair to bring her mind some ease


She speaks to it of love that was so vile

A barren desert feeding off her pleas

His promises were only words that tease

What once was she was stolen by his guile


The gentle breeze then whispered girl to sleep

With fragrant scents from Joyous yesteryear

And wiped away the tears which bore her pain


The breeze to storm with vengeance it must reap

Upon the source of tears he didn’t hear

Which will forever cover him with rain

I don't know which was better, your poem or your choice of songs. Both were great!

This one was filled with passion and self love, I dug it, nice poetry bro, voted up and out!

It reminds me of a break up I had many years back, with a lady who didn't want to let go, but we must grow in differing directions at times, in this life. Sometimes for the better as well, I like how this flows overall as well smooth jazzy flow, when read with the music in the video simultaneously. Nice!

Martin this is one of the best pieces I've read of yours. This story is so sad, and I know that man deeply regretted letting things end that way.

Sad in a way. Good reflection on a woman's feelings after a love has gone.
