My throat burns with tears



Tears you don’t see.
Eyes dry. No tears flow.
This ache within me.
Tears choking my heart.

Silent tears flowing.
Down my cheeks, tears.
So long ago, I almost forgot.
No tears now. A wall I built.

Yes, God sees my tears.
No wall can I hide from Him.
I cry for my brokeness.
Wasted tears these are not.

When words fail me.
Pain piercing my heart.
Tears falling like raindrops.
My tears, a prayer to God.

Are these wasted tears?
Tell me. Explain to me.
Yet, I am stubborn. Eyes red.
My throat burns with tears.
