red sticky tears… By Toni Cross

these knees are crying

red sticky tears

from bearing the brunt

of so many falls

rocks and dirt

beneath tender skin

becoming part of a scab


that scab

will grow into a scar

and then

sleek whiteness

will be peppered

with even paler

tiny mountains

and valleys

ridges and bumps


snow-covered hills

that tell the tale

of bloody congealing droplets

My name is Toni Clegg, 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.
