Tears is a short poem written and shared by Sanjhee Gianchandani to The Ugly Writers under the theme After The Storm for the month of June.




Not just drops of salty water

but remnants of painful slaughter

of heart and the soul perhaps the psyche

of a person who did not know the

way to beg for consideration or mercy

Prayed for some solace perhaps,

a better tomorrow, the fulfillment of

dreams washed down the cheeks

They say everything happens for a reason

everyone has their share of happiness

So why does it all seem so blurry?

The future bleak; no shoulder to lean on

Couldn’t articulate my voiceless cries

All the moments of hurt spent in isolation

shunned all those who pretended concern

For alone, all alone shall I bear

this burden, and that for times to come
