On the Blade of Her Tears

watch the tears as they fall
knowing and understanding
and yet
wishing it were not so
watch them slide
feel the edges
as they pierce the heart
cold in the darkness
glistening in the too harsh glow
of the street light
I long to ease the pain
long to brush the hurt away
as easy as I dry the tears
and yet
with all of the longing
and all of the wishing
I know I can’t
the blade of her tears
like the edge on her shears
cuts to the core
as she disappears
into the night
