Where the Sad Things Hide | Teen Ink

Where the Sad Things Hide MAG

By Anonymous

As they kissed for the last time
His eyes betrayed the cruelty of his crime
She was broken beyond repair
His last words, “Take care,”
Locked into her mind they stood
Where even death did no good
And hidden there in that sad place
Is the trace of an angel’s tear as it rolls down her face
The water it stained as it fell
There is where the sad things dwell

This was amazing ! It's really meaningful to someone who has been through this, a breakup I should say. So unique! Very short but says a lot.

Dreams are like a box of chocolates, if you hold on and think about them for to long it will all start to melt away.

I really like this it sounds like it has a double meaning of course the one that you are trying to relay, but also one that you didn't really think about putting out there.
