Weeping Willow

The weeping willow

A tree with evergreen leaves

That droop as if they are tears

Suspended in midair

Never able to touch ground

A brown bark so strong

That it holds their weight

Yet inside it is soft and filed

With water

The tears that have succumbed

To gravity

Have created the lake

That now surrounds it

 

The girl that cries

For the guy

With the evergreen eyes

Her face frowns

With sadness

Her tears trace

The outline

Of her face

While never touching

The ground

The sadness she does not show

Lives inside her

Her soul is Atlantis

Becoming submerged

In ocean water

That girl has become

The weeping willow

Visible outside

Her window
