Her Pain

her tears cascade down the nose of her face,

and her cries seem delicate as a garment of lace,

her pain strong and hard like a cold steel bar,

Because her loves parents are making her go afar.

So her hair she does cut,

so the feeling in her gut,

might slowly fade away,

If only for that day.

Her control seemingly hard won,

now seems as heavy as a ton,

as her heart's strength fades soon after,

her love's last softly uttered laughter.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Her pain feels familiar and  
reminds me of my own...
