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.
