A Bucket For Your Tears


i am not perfect, that is a given
i do not cry at funerals
i do not sing praises even when
everyone gushes
i rarely smile at strangers even if
they mean well
i smirk at the sight of teens and their
pdas
i am never patronizing
almost cold as ice
heartless you can call me that
yes i can own up to nearly every
fault, i don't mind

but when it comes to you i
make a 360 degree turn
docile as a child
ready to listen to your endless whimpers
a bucket for your tears

    A good poem this is that could have the taste of being one of sadness bu this is not one of that character.

    I think you did well with the honesty here. You don`t do this or that but it comes to that person, well, very truthful in the feeling expressed.

    I give you high arks for this one; I like it! (Report) Reply
