Swallowing Tears.

When love is liquified it simply drains away in tears

Swallowing tears.

"One of life's Most 
bitter of liquids pressed
even in the tiniest of increments.

Her eyes held

a sharp glance

that could chew up

the center of

your dreams

when she was

angry with you

and a smile that would

set even distant

Pluto to blazing

in the warmth

of her gaze.

Each time

love filled her grin

she offered a lovely

pair of petulant lips

dewy and begging

to be kissed.

I was enraptured

longing to teach

her pupils bliss

When passion flared

it was like a soft

open, mouthed sigh

transforming into

a heavenly chorus of two.

and so we shared

many incredible

views and the tastes

love together..

But then....

Her eyes

closed one day,

over a tight

lipped frown

tears dripping

from sealed lashes

as she bid

me goodbye.

She would not

open her eyes

till I was gone

lest I'd notice

the cavities

I had left

in the dying light

of a love now blinded

to all she once

cherished seeing.

Cling tightly to

whoever graces your heart

with love lest you

wind up swallowing

both pride and tears

and choke

on the pain

you've brewed.
