Watching the kitchen tap rumble away
the waters , sadness is recounted
and then emptied into words .

A withdrawn feeling transports the time
into the nights spent listening to a soulful song
in hope of drawing some happiness.

Sadness is condensed into the
little things that are encountered.
and there is an unusual warmth
in the most bland gestures.

A warmth of the welling up eyes.
Tears would be too dramatic here.

I like, always like the simplicity with which you capture the emotion- just right! Never too dramatic!

I second Rukhiya, the right amount of emotion is what this space is all about.. and its that restrained quality that really leaves an impact!!
