Acid Tears

Acid Tears

A Poem by A. Doyle



I close my eyes and see
Painted in the dark
Your sad eyes
Piercing through me
A Smile and a laugh
Broken by the silent islands
We’ve retreated to
Once there was music
We could dance to
Then there was the sound
Of pain
The saddest tune
I’ve ever felt
And all that’s left
Are stains on my heart
From acid tears that fell
Leaving only loss and regret
