All My Tears

Kari enjoys writing poetry. There is a certain freedom in poetry because you don't always have to follow the rules.

Dust Devils

Dust Devils

All my tears

are caused by fear,

quite irrational.

Fear of rejection.

Fear of failure.

Fear of losing what I loved.

Loving costs so very much

in tears and fears and years.

So just don’t love.

Don’t want, don’t hate,

just throw it all away.

Once it’s gone

the light comes on,

and I can see again.

Question: Is this personal experience (if you don't mind me asking) or general observation [of] life?
