She Cries

She Cries

A Poem by Alexa Tasch

Cool tears cascading hot cheeks
Each a beacon of light
Each a book with a story within
This one is for the boy she loved
This for the friends who mocked her
Another for her favorite song
One for the sake of crying
Stress is like blood pumping through her veins
The corners of her mind are dark and cold
Spider's webs distort her vision
The clouds are always dark in her sky
She can't even see the sun where is shines
Feathers falling caress her soft skin
She doesn't notice
She only cries for love
For life and death
For things that are and aren't
For real and fake alike
"Hello dear" feels like a lashing
And she feels her heart die
Some days we all feel like this girl
And just want to cry
But I am strong
I want to help her before she breaks
I reach out and catch her crystal tears
She doesn't notice me
She keeps on crying

Your writing vividly portrays the seeming insurmountable barrage of life in general and the feelings of sadness and depression whose effect we've all felt as a result. Its hard when life seems so overwhelming that sometimes you do not notice anything around you, even close friends. Sometimes I feel that way with problems with work, relationships, or just life in general getting me down. Its good that your friend has someone like you who wants to help them. Sometimes you can't actively help them, but you can be there when they need you most.

Spider's webs distort her vision( i would actually say: A spider's web. . ., or: Spider webs. . .
other then that, this is beautifully done, and true for all tears, or just for that one momment when we do decide to cry, cause each tear has a meaning and i love that u put that in there. Im srry to hear that you an ur friend been having hard times, peace and love to u my friend

This is beautifly sad. "Each a book with a story within," best line. I really like how you name what each individual tear is for, for a few lines after. Very well done.
