Dibya Ranjan Giri

Lake Of Tears

A poets soul pours out their word

Into hearts needing to be heard

And they tell it all within each line

Giving others hope with a rhyme

All our emotions from intense fears

Are captured into the lake of tears

Spilling onto the pages as we cry

Knowing our words will never die

Somehow everything comes to play

With all the words we’re meant to say

And as we drown in this lake of ink

We realize tears spell what we think

A poets work can never be complete

For their soulful ink will never deplete

Reaching the audience one by one

Knowing their words touch someone

Though sometimes it hurts too much

Poets inspire with their deadly touch

Twisting the words in a special way

Creating pure magic to take you away

Poets must lay everything on the line

By dying on pages with their rhyme

Bleeding out their souls for all to see

And creating feelings to their poetry.
