Glass Tears

Glass Tears

A Poem by danielle.

I can hold it in.
I’m keeping on the lid
till the contents are contained.


Because in there, honesty and lies are merging
the fragile meniscus turgid

A tempest of unspoken words;
of truths untold.
Captive as glass tears…
afraid to fall.

Ouch, a torn meniscus is so painful. I might be shedding tears as well. It made my scarred knee ache just to read about it! On a technical note, you have a repetition of the word "the" in the second line. I don't know what the "honesty and lies" might be but if you're at my age it's probably about telling yourself you're just as physically capable as you once were, and that could quickly lead to a torn meniscus. I hope you have an ice pack handy. My knee still aches in empathy. I enjoyed the read.
