Bloody Tears

Today as I looked in the mirror
I could not believe what i seen
Instead of a watery tear in my eye
It was blood that rolled down my cheek
I wiped it away as it fell
Leaving a smearing smudge on my face
And suddenly more bloody tears
As my heart was beginning to race
I closed my eyes, unbelieving
For surely this is a dream
But opening my eyes I realize
That it was as it seemed
Then I collected myself
The beat of my heart eased
And as I became calm
The bloody tears ceased
I have heard of this before
But the first time I have seen
They say when a heart is broken
Is when you cry and you bleed

This poem is not for everyone i know but hardly any of my poems i write are of puppy dogs and humming birds. I know more of pain than i do of love
