Tears on my pillow...
from yet another night of
loneliness. So cold, so dark and so
empty. I lie here dazed by the silence
of my environment, longing for
a little care.

Tears on my pillow...
from another day, ensnared in
a cage not knowing yesterday and
not sure of tomorrow.

Tears on my pillow...
from a lifetime of pain.
Unloved, not cared about and
completely invisible to those who I
thought was a mother, father, sister
and brother.

Tears on my pillow...
from a night of empty dreams,
when I hoped that there would be
no tears on my pillow when I awoke.
But there were...
Tears on my pillow...

- Edward L. Jones
