A Last Tear

Looking up

with tear filled eyes

at someone who

once meant the world


empty shallow shell

encasing the place

where a heart once lived

and love poured forth


when did the sun

stop rising on our love?


when did the words “I love you”

become too difficult to say


What did I say “yes” to

so many moons ago


there’s nothing left

to shed a tear over

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. I’m sorry for the news of friends – I know you share the pain. Thanks for being such a kind hearted person Bri


  1. Aww… sad.. but lovely..
    Sometimes, it just happens, and you end up standing in the middle of nowhere, knowing not how, when and why…

    Very well expressed in this poem…


  2. no, it can’t be!
    somewhere there must be hope.
    or is that just me
    so i can hang on to tears
    where you do let them go.
    I admire your strenght in this sadness
