Crying

Late at night,
In the sorrow veiled darkness
I cry
Though no tears are shed
No sobs are said
The ink is my tears
The paper, my voice

I cry to the moon
Who knows my loneliness
I cry to the pillow
In my arms
Which has no lips to kiss
No skin to touch
No hand to hold
I cry to the shadows
Who own no earthly thoughts

When the tears have run dry
And the voice used up
I sigh
And sleep
And dream of crying moons
And dancing shadows
I awake to the pillow
Cradled in my arms.
I wrote this late at night when I was really depressed and feeling lonely. For anyone who knows me it's very odd that I was depressed because I'm never depressed. After writing this I felt much better though. I got this picture off of google so It's not mine.

Loved it; verily expressive. It would be just as swell without the picture.

That's very nice.
I love how you compared ink to tears and paper to voice.
