THE GREATEST TORTURE


The greatest torture ever faced,
Is that of speaking tears.

For each small drop comes a pain,
That hollows as it falls,

And brings to mind that no one's there
To hear them as they're called.

But

Of all the pain,
Of all the tears,
Of all the hurt, anger, and loss,
Are the tears of never having,
Of crying unwanted and lost.

Oh what pains are taken,
To call out to tears,
That have no name,
No shape,
No form,

That are looked upon
As nothing more
Than raindrops
In a storm.

Short, with a profound message. One I can relate to.
