Poetry

my eyes are raining
it seems like every day
that my eyes are lonely + wet
I've found something else
causing me to cry
tears running down my face
sometimes they're happy tears
sometimes they are sad tears
tears you and I share
today we share happy tears
once again your voice in my ear
telling me you'll love me
until the very end of time

Jeannie
Do you remember?
the first time
I got the courage up
to say I love you
I was the tallest kid
in the neighborhood
but for some reason
you scared to shit
out of me, girls :)

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post. Beautiful poetry! Excellent use of personification and metaphors to portray the feeling of crying.
