Sounds Of A Tear

If tears made a sound, would they speak the truth?
Would love’s tears whisper sweet melodies?
Or mother’s mourn a banshee scream!
Surely tears of joy echo!
And ecstasy hollers!
What about torture?
Must be noisy!
Would tears yell?
or just
flow?

A well crafted piece, well penned, regards Tom 10/10
I loved this poel, Doug! You should set it to music!
It's sad to know that there are some things in life that we do not have the power to choose. I can only make the most of what's in store for me...they are not at all always good things, however.
