    Tears In A Bottle

    Drying my eyes from another crying episode
    Trying to get myself out of this pitiful, depressing mode
    Has left me feeling numb, with a bad taste in my mouth
    And with nowhere to turn, and no one to hear me when I shout

    But how can they hear me when I am shouting in silence?
    Where must I go to get back my confidence?
    When will I get back to the point of authority?
    I have searched, and could not find a pill for what ails me

    All my tears were shed in the same place
    Where I cried so hard the tears began to burn my face
    My eyes have changed color since my tears started to flow
    All these tears, and still, no one knows

    Knows the depth of my pain
    Nor the path of my tear stains
    Everything looks different but remains the same
    Complicated with the fear of starting over again

    I know putting my heart back together won’t be easy
    Because I didn’t give a portion of my heart, I gave it all, completely
    So I know I am taking a chance by going back out there
    Back to the place that caused these never ending tears

    Trying to start over my heart tells me I am heading for trouble
    And to be careful not to place all my cards on the table
    Learning from my past I know love will always be a gamble
    At least that is what I feel, when I look at tears floating in a bottle

    I feel the pain...I feel the tears
    sometimes the pain lingers for years...
    yet you'll have bad days where the tears overflow
    yet it helps to write or talk it out to let others know
    this pain most assuredly is felt...
    though it's doesn't leave marks or welts...
    yet something deep down always remains
    what is left behind is a testimony of all the pain

    I had to step into the shoe of this person to see things from her perspective. I agree with you that we have to talk. The problem is that most people don't know what to say. That is where poetry comes in and can be used as theropy. Some who are in pain needs to see and hear others that have gone through simular situations so they
    Know that they are not alone.
