Silent Tears

The silent tears fell unnoticed.

They weren't sad, no not entirely,

some longing, some love was mixed in too.

Watery tears were nothing compared to these silent ones.

They can't be seen, only felt

as they tear at the soul, slowly and painfully.

But the worst is that they are only in the heart.

No one here can see the tears, much less stem them.

Please, please don't wash me away.
