Favorite Quote:
"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."~ Dr. Seuss

My lips are stained dark red,
My eyes are dark blue,
My hair is thin and naturally not dark brown,
These tears that you see?
They are an allusion, I think...

I like the wet trail they leave on my hollow cheeks, ya know?
It's so harmonious and gentle,
Seemingly accidental,

I must tell you something,
Promise you won't weep or turn away from my hidden grief?

I am me.
I cannot speak.

You see,
Since you have yet to step away grief stricken as most,
I must go,
Back to my grave,
To wait for another lost soul.

The author's comments:
I was inspired by a painting/drawing I saw of a girl with no mouth.
