A Single Tear by Cerridwyn Tiponi

A single tear falls,
Then two…then three,
Until a river forms
Down the contours of her face.
Overwhelming sadness
Overtakes her,
Physically and mentally,
Wishes the hurt will stop.
She is lost…
Unsure of where to turn
For help…for guidance,
For some understanding.
She feels so alone;
Isolated even when others are near.
Does anyone bear witness
To her pain…her sorrow,
She prays they don’t see
Yet secretly wishes
Someone will notice
And provide comfort,
Provide succour…
Provide kindness.
Until then,
She puts on a brave face
And carries on.
