Memories and Teardrops

Memories and Teardrops

A Poem by James

Every song's a love song 
if you sing it from the heart
and every verse a tragedy 
We knew it from the start.
Now I sit in shadows 
waiting for you to find
that place in your in your heart 
where you hid a piece of mine.

Memories are like teardrops I hope they never go
one stains my dirty face the other hurts my soul.

Now you've left this world
left us far behind
searching for an answer 
I know we'll never find.
I've tried my best to lose it all,
everything I've ever felt
But the fire you lit inside my chest
can never be put out.

Memories are like teardrops they say they never go
one stains my dirty face, the other scars on my soul.

               ~  ~  ~

Promises are fairy tales
You never can believe
the words that come from someone's lips
when they say they'll never leave.

Beautiful words, so sorrowful. I can imagine these as lyrics for a song. Really pulls on the heartstrings this one James. Excellent work.

So lovely are your words and memories are hard to burn as they walk beside us always wanting to be heard in some place they are hidden within the depths of our mind crying out to us in dreams and thoughts carrying us into their voice once more. ;-]

I agree, with a memory they are hard to forget no matter how hard you try.

I agree James.
"Promises are fairy tales
You never can believe
the words that come from someone's lips
when they say they'll never leave."
I enjoyed the complete poem and the above lines. Old man knowledge, we shall learn. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

When you're ready, until then just let it spill out.
Heart wrenching words here....they would make a great song. Yes, unfortunately people do leave whether by choice or by death. The emotions in this are very real and powerful. The flow of the words and the rhyme is great. Well written....Lydi**
