Best Poem of Portia Lane

When A Mother Cries

When a mother cries,
Her tears stab at her daughter's heart
As they plummet to the floor

When a mother cries
Her daughter cries too
She cries because she does not know what is wrong
She cries because she can't get rid of her mother's pain
She cries most of all because she loves her mother

When a daughter cries because her mother cries
Her mother cries more
She cries because her pain has hurt her daughter
She cries because she does not want to see her daughter cry because of her
She cries most of all,
Because she loves her daughter

Once ...

Secret Reasons For Pain

It’s times like these
When I wish friendships didn’t exist
Cause feelings get more sensitive
Too easy for me to slip

Slightest insecurities
Uncovered
Causes trauma
