a little tear goes trickling by…

slowly slowly the drops form
sometimes salty but always warm
a little red flashes at times
once you miss it, once it dies!

mindless, ceaseless, raining drops
trickling, rushing, hiding drops
drop by drop maketh a puddle –
liquid pain anchored in a muddle

years of anguish and some despair
all tucked within the beautiful pair
each has a tale tied by a string,
like beaded pearls hanging on a ring

sometimes silent, sometimes playful
a little nudgy, a little hopeful
a little tear goes trickling by
finding no foe, no friends nearby…

Spread the love

  1. She bore the pains of unshed tears umpteen,
    each that inward lay; afar from the seen.
    A solitary soul by lively facets veiled,
    beauty such; to only fortunate hearts revealed.

    What you wrote was heartfelt 🙂

    In a world of uncertainty,
    In this age of calamity;
    How do we find our way,
    And walk towards unity?

    So some drama let’s really raise,
    Here is really what I want to say:
    Tears will roll without control,
    This perhaps is the only way!…

    I wish to bathe in the sun daily,
    Srimad-Bhagavatam certainly!
    The very best let’s not dismiss,
    How else are we to find peace?

    So to end this here let’s pray:
    May we cry and laugh today,
    Unload/download all that weight,
    And be ourselves in full display!…
