Luxury of Tears

Oh, how I want a silent place
Where I can pour my troubled soul
Out in shining tears beneath the starlight.
Away from the uncaring ears
Of a falsely joyful world
Where smiles matter more than being real.
With stifled sobs my heart is sore
Oh, for the luxury of tears!
To cry, and find some healing in my pain.

  1. Beautiful and strong, just like you. You really have a way with words...the phrase 'falsely joyful world' especially hit me.

    Praying for you.

  2. Thank you for your comment. I can honestly say that you, too, have a wonderful way with words. I enjoy reading your poetry so much! Thank you, also, for your prayers. I have been doing a lot better the past 2 days, so I think they took effect.
