Every Tear She's Cried Is Mine


E
very tear she's cried is mine.
Vain, my attempts to halt them all.
Even if I'm not so inclined,
Rather I die than let one fall.

Yearn to hold, my love as she weeps.
To taste her sweet and salty tears.
Excites protective feelings deep,
And curbs these lonely doubts and fears.

Richly filled with the gift of her,
Sorrowed by our shared loneliness.
Her love, her voice, her sweet laughter,
Emit echoes of emptiness.

Separated, I am all alone,
Can never be whole ‘til rejoined.
Rewarded with her siren's song,
I repeat these words I've coined:

Every tear she's cried is mine.
Do you doubt the pangs of empathy?
I know it's truly a pain sublime;
Sworn to her soul I'll always be.

My only hope in all this life,
Is to beat out fate, gain the time;
Not to miss one tear, for through her strife,
Every tear she's cried is mine.

Very well done, Chris, even if you are showing off with the "highlighted acrostic."
Jeeze, the woman needs a hug and some loving support and here you are flexing your poetic muscles in her face. What a man you are.

Well, this was really a good one! An Acrostic to boot, you show off! j/k...

I loved it! I have one question, I have seen repeated so far, that you guys kind of feel lost or how can I put this, I'm not quite sure. Helpless I guess when your lady cries, is this true? Do I have this right?
Not only did I want to challenge you guys but it's for my own insight also. To learn...
So I really do appreciate you guys doing this!

This is so beautiful.
I'm in that dilemna of wanting to write on and on about how wonderful I think this is and knowing that I would make people ill!
You are beautiful, my soul. Thankyou - every tear I have is indeed yours...especially the ones I have because of this poem.

Thank you very much everyone, (flexing-flexing.)
WhtDove- No, I do not feel helpless when she cries, only empathetic. I shed a tear to match each one that she weeps. And I wish only to catch each one. I treasure her tears, just as I treasure her joy. Since we are but two halves of a single whole, what she feels, so do I.
Make me ill anytime you want love.

Right then people - prepare to be ill!!!!

There are no tears
inside me now
for you have
caught them all
before they even fell
and
before the dawn
of time or life
I knew you for
my other part -
I just hadn't
known you yet
sweet sweet love
I have no tears
that could outshine
the peace I hold
in my heart

Imagine that I'm reading your words and my own to you now... for one day I shall...
