Poetry Beatnik Tear

A tear drips
   and she sighs
A tear drips
   and she remembers

She remembers
   the day they met
She remembers
   seeing him at her door
   at night
She remembers
   not knowing 
   what to think of him
She remembers
   being afraid
   to talk to him
She remembers
   she wasn't herself
   that night

She thinks
   of the times together
   before either spoke
   the truth known by both
She thinks
   of his poetry
   and how she wished
   it was about her
She thinks
   of how he opened his heart
   and told her the story
   of his pain

She listens
   to his music
   to think of him
She listens
   to "their" song
   and starts crying again
She listens
   and feels pain
   instead of joy
   because she cannot be near to him

She remembers
   the moment they fell in love
She remembers
   knowing of her love for him
   and feeling his love for her
   coming together
   at the same time
She remembers
   he played "their" song,
   the song that was playing
   when they felt the Magic,
   in order to confess his love
She remembers
   knowing what song he was about to play
   and why
   and how he started to say how he felt
   and how she broke in with "I love you too."

She thinks
   of eternity
She thinks
   of the crescent moon
She thinks
   of how they both knew
   all along
   of their destiny together
She thinks
   of the creek
She thinks
   of his eyes
She thinks
   of sitting together
   waiting for their ride
   watching the moon

She thinks
   of his touch
She thinks
   of his embrace
She thinks
   of him

She touches his picture
   and feels
   only the plastic
   of the cover

A tear drips
   and she sighs
A tear drips
   and she remembers
A tear drips
   and she thinks
A tear drips
   and she listens

A tear drips
   and she sighs
      and she remembers
         and she listens
            and she thinks
               of his love
               of his embrace

A tear drips
   and she thinks
      of him.
