Tears on a page

Tears on a page

A Poem by emilythestrange

" None of that, little madam" she says,
" I'll stop you reading altogether" she says
Three kids and she still doesn't understand.

Getting dressed in the bathroom,
Big blue eyes, shiny blue tears,
Nothing worse than wanting a hug from someone in a different country.

I can hear her downstairs,
Biting my lip so I don't cry again,
Shaking hands, untidy mind.

I don't want to seem emo,
Or like my problems are bigger than yours,
I just want someone to hold me, and call me sweetie and darling and chick pie.

I want someone to ask what's wrong,

I don't want to be that sad old poet,

I just want to be me again,

A girl who doesn't cry in her sisters bathroom,

A girl who isn't just tears on a page.

This was very heartfelt. I enjoyed reading even though it was sad. I didn't really like the emo part since i felt it killed some of the intenseness of it but overall i liked.

Tears on a page, the girl; the page being the world and the tears shattered fragments of a broken heart? Lovely concept.

Thank you :)
Honest and raw, I've been there too. * hugs *
You portray that shattered feeling very well, I especially like the last line. It sums it all up with a fantastic metaphor.
Great poem.
