My Ungrateful Tears

Updated on March 27, 2014

My ungrateful tears are pouring out of my eyes.

I try to control them but they always break free.

I willingly let then dance on my face from time to time.

But they are greedy.

They want more.

They want to consume me.

They don't care about how much I try to keep them safe.

They only want to be free.

To come and go as they please.

My ungrateful tears.

I try to warn them.

But little do they know, that someday they will will dry up and just fade away.

      @sassyk73: Karen I apologize for being absent so long from your hubs, my friend. My reasons are of a personal nature which shall remain so for now.

      The descriptive poetry above tells me that you're just having another session. The intensity of the words relate that these mood swings have again put you through the emotional turbulence from an ecstatic high to this now tear filled, unbelievable depressing low, once more.

      The feelings, replete with the passionate inflections has been expressed quite vividly, as you are so adept at presenting when the Bi-polar episodes appear.

      I feel the strength being exerted with these words and know that you have again faced your demons and this hub has allowed us privy to the outcome, Karen. You have all

      our prayers and love. God Bless and Keep you!

      Regards Mike (Aka Professor M!) ;D
