tired tears, written by Toni L.A. Cross 9/22/09

great big drops
of salty tears
running down cherubic cheeks

the sheets are cold
tired, so tired
lonely alone

great big drops
of salty tears
running down cherubic cheeks

face is red
and feels all blotchy hot
saline itchy on soft skin

great big drops
of salty tears
running down cherubic cheeks

heaving hiccupy sighs
and shuddering gasps
eyes are drifting shut

nighty night
and mommy’s arms
now all is  good and right

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
