Trail of Tears

Trail of Tears

On this night of stars
Where the velvet sky is clear
and romance is in the scented air
I look up into his face
A place where I love to linger
but my gaze is not returned
The light is gone from his eyes
His look is vacant
and his mind clearly elsewhere
He is present in body,
though absent in spirit
His heart, already taken back from me
and likely given to another
I knew then he was no longer mine
My trail of tears was his parting gift

    The poem touches so deep
    The words paint a picture of heartbreak and it’s amazing
