Enveloping Sadness


Sadness envelopes my mind as my heart flips into pools
of grief, awaiting reluctant tears.

Wanting to never feel these crystal tears grate against
my soggy heart, afraid of being torn apart forever.

Afraid of losing my love to death's embrace, I cringe
inside, allowing myself no room for incriminations as
I strengthen my resolve and take over his care even
more than before.

No tongue would ask no eye would mourn

A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
