Paper Tears

paper tears rain down
absorption remains sorrow
letting go is hard

paper tears not real
only feed a rich anger
when love could bind all

give me the freedom
to search your inner being
and feel your soft heart

love raptures us all
willing or not we grow
into loves true gift

Very meaningful Melanie!! ....yes anger is so destructive and divisive whilst love can be so cohesive and bonding for growth!!

Thanks much Nanka. You are a faithful reader. Sometimes when I write a poem( Senryu)I start going in one direction and end up in the other. So glad you liked it.

"Willing or not we grow into loves'
true gift". An inspiring phrase.
A melancholy shaded poem, yet filled
with hope and wisdom.
