About the Poem
I wrote this after my boyfriend and I broke up after dating for more than a year. I just kept crying over how it ended so I wrote this one day and gave it to one of my friends who asked why I was crying. It went around the school, and finally my ex- boyfriend got it and he ended up asking me back. He gave it back to me and I decided to submit it so people know that you can change the course of fate with a few words.
Why Am I Crying?
|by Caria Canalez|
|The grass is billowing by the steed.
The night is so very clear.
all I really, really need.
is to know that you are there.
The moon is shining brilliantly white.
the stars are twinkling everywhere.
so why am I crying on this beautiful night?
I am crying because you are not there.
