In a Vessel of Sorrow

by mandaceehb

The wisp of a frown

A delicate teardrop so sweet

Crestfallen faces that fall to the ground

Eyes saddened with piercing sorrow


The ache of a pained cry

Muffled sobs and suppressed emotions

Salty tears that seep into the tongue

Blood that runs the earth red


All of this he collects

In a vessel only so strong as himself

Closing his eyes, he floats away

To a place that cannot be found
