Tears That Never Seem To Fall


Tears That Never Seem To Fall

Amanda is no different
than you or me.
She wears a mask
that always keeps a smile.
It prevents the tears
that never seem to fall.
On rainy days
she sits by the window.
Gazing at her reflection
in the window pane.
It appears as if
the drops of rain are
streaming down her face.

  1. Definitely makes you think about all the masks worn around the world. At least this mask is covering her sadness. Other masks hide evil, dark character traits and even killers. The always smiling mask “wears thin,” I feel. Better to be real than to have the cracks shatter the entire person. Great writing brings wonderful variety of comments here, Drew!

  2. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should publish more about this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people don’t speak about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!
