I want to trap those silver tears
that rolled down your cheeks
And save them in a bottle as a reminder
Of how my heart broke
to hear the fears of the tears
That rolled down the face that always held the smile
Which removed the cloak of doubt from my heart
And held me spellbound in the belly of our desires
I want to undo the cloth of each broken promise
I clothed you with.
Unlace the laces of doubt I tied with my actions and inactions
For I saw the reflection of your pain in each tear I wiped
And silently wish this would not be framed in time
For the reason for those silver tears haunts me down to the soul
But alas, a new day is birthed out of the egg of darkness
I pray the only time I see your tears is when I make you laugh your soul out.
