Poem: No Point Crying Over Spilled Milk

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

No point crying over spilled milk is a poem about how one's day can go wrong letting frustration grow. She feels like hiding beneath the covers but realizes there is no point. Things out of her control happen everyday. She releases her emotions by typing words onto the screen allowing her to see the brighter side of life.

No Point Crying Over Spilled Milk

When frustration quickly grows,

testing her moral virtue

meeting a door head on,

she feels a bit drained

hiding beneath the covers.


Realizing there is no point

crying over spilled milk,

when catastrophes happen

right and left,

she climbs out of bed

pouring her heart onto the page.


As her fingers rapidly tap

words onto the screen

her sad emotions vanish

into the world of cyberspace,

permitting her eyes to see

the brighter side of life.

"Tom Rush - "What's Wrong With America (The Poor Have Too Much Money)"

Manatita44,

Thank you.

It is nice to hear your friendly voice...I keep missing your work.

Things happen...no need to draw it out. (Unless of course...writing a poem)

Take care.

'Sad emotions vanish, into the world of cyberspace.' A great way of occupying the mind. No, crying may not always help. Peace.

Rosina,

Thank you.

Venting with words on a page is much better than the alternative.

No one likes to hear me scream.

Have a great day.

Thank you so much!

I think the days are getting brighter...we all have a few setbacks now & then.

I am glad my words can express feelings because I feel others can relate to them also.
