Heartache Showing on Your Face
The corners of your mouth turned down.
The water in your eyes about to fall,
and stream along your cheeks.
Tears about to give your cheeks a kiss!
Oh! How l hate to see you sad like this.
Your lip is trembling, regressing to the child you were.
Trying to prevent what you cannot control.
A sigh., a sob., your breath uneven as you aim for calm.
But sadness does prevail, you cannot halt the flow.
Once your eyes have filled up to the point.... where you have no choice
The tears..... they overflow.
Your heart is breaking, l can see.
From long lost ghosts you cannot break free.
I see your whole body start to shudder
and to shiver.
But the saddest part of all is when l realise
I am looking in the mirror.
