Female Tears

I saw him with her
in the hall
kissing her in love
a dark cloud formed

It was raining in my soul

I looked outside
It's raining there too
It made me stop to wonder
Is God a women like me?

Had a man broken her heart too?

   The River

I walked along a cold river
Stone cold, glossy with ice
Picekd up a rock, smooth. Polished clean
By the surging, rushing waves
I threw it in

It hit with a silence
So it would not be missed
Just another rock to be lost
One in a million under the waves
It made no ripple

In the waves of ice and snow
clean and smooth,free of dirt,
free of marks, scraches, imperfections
inpenatrable by touch
no light can see inside
I jumped in
