Cry Baby

c
r
y

over
love's
gruesome death spiral
over romance's
spiraling inception

c
r
y

over
loss's
bitter little pill
over
gain's
enriching satiety

c
r
y

when
cruel words
embed with barbs
when
honeyed kisses
katana-arc a throat

c
r
y

as
blows
strangle hopes
as
gasps
regale senses

c
r
y

for
nothing
in particular
for
everything
that matters

  3. There is much to cry for in this world. Many things have a good start only to end in sorrow. Nice, Diana.

    1. I can cry when I'm happy, sad, nostalgic, empathetic ... like you I see it as cathartic. Love your poetry.

  6. Eusebia: Thank you for reading me. I like to think many things begin sorrowfully and perhaps lead to something joyful :)
