TEARS

How many tears can one girl cry?

----

it depends on the lie...

---

The world is often not what it seems

Broken hearts

Broken dreams

---

How many tears can one girl cry?

---

What seems real is often make believe

a part of the truth but not complete

My heart is often not considered

I am real and my heart beats

---

Beauty is skin deep

The heart is deeper

---

How many tears can one girl cry?

---

I am not a basket or a vase

I am not for purchase or for sale

My tears are salty like all others...

---

Only part of the truth was told

Only one picture given

not all

---

How many tears can one girl cry?

---

The ice cream man and blue eyes were the lies

they broke my heart

For them I cry

---

I need to be free

For some day the truth may come to my door

It may hold me in it's arms

and wipe away my tears

---

How many tears can one girl cry?

---

She can cry

 

         a river...

I like the idea of this. To be honest, I think the first thirteen lines strike hard and deep, and the poem could effectively jump right to the final two lines. Although the 'ice cream man and blue eyes' is a very intriguing image.

It's a strong, universal and personal subject you have shared. Keep writing.
