A Tearful Poem

As some of you may know, I enjoy to write. English was actually one of my favorite subjects in school with history close behind. Anyway, I was struggling with the fact that my mom was no longer here with us. Writing has always been a release for me, but it comes and goes. Most times I can’t force it to come. I just have to wait until inspiration hits.

Well one day while I was taking a shower, this poem came to me. When it hits me, it’s hard for me to do much of anything else until it’s finished. I quickly finished my shower with lines running through my head. I got to writing things down and shortly after that, this poem came to be. It was hard to write, trust me when I say there were many tears shed in the writing of this poem, but those tears helped release all those feelings I was holding onto inside. Which in turn helped me start the healing process and rid myself of the depressed state I was in. So without further anticipation, (if you do have any) here is the short poem. ❀

Tears In The Shower

Let the water fall,
And the tears run down my face.
Where no one can see me,
As a genuine basket case.

Mixed in with the water,
They run down the drain.
I let them all out,
So no-one can see my pain.

I watch the tears vanish,
Almost into thin air.
Wondering why this happened,
And how it isn’t fair.

I miss you greatly,
As I step out into the cold.
You’ll always be apart of me,
Even when I’m grey and old.

My memories of you,
Are like a steam tower.
They’ll start to disapear,
Like tears in the shower.

What are your thoughts? I’d love some feedback in the comments below! ❀

Hi all! I am 28 years old, live in the Lake of the Ozarks area in Missouri! I am married to my wonderful husband for 7 years, and together we have an adorable 5 year old son, a 3 year old son and a 10 month old boy!! I have been writing for as long as I can remember. My grandma was one of my biggest supporters until she passed away in 2010. I have been writing a book for 10+ years, and am looking to finish it this year! I have written many poems, and some short stories along the way as well. My husband is a mechanic and I'm a stay at home mom. Writing is a big part of my life and that played a part in starting this blog!
