Shadow Tears

by Baby Rainbow   Jun 9, 2015

The shadowy gift of tears returns
to touch the abyss that has become my heart.

Strolling down my cheeks,
burning like a fire's shards of desperation,
to turn my strength into ashes.

Excruciating thoughts of goodbye
appear within white pills,
as this girl's spark merges
with the dying mists of hope.

She fears she will be gone soon,
and all this time,
all she ever wanted
was for you to love her heart.
