I’ve been blind
To all that surrounds me
Crushed and hurt
By all those around me

A single teardrop
Starts to fall
As the truth breaks down
A well hidden wall

Laid bare it steals
The lies within
And rips at the heart
Of everything

Now as the tears
Flow free and fast
I’m gripped with a fear
Of losing the past

Holding tight
To all that love
When suddenly
It’s no longer enough

And the tears remind me
Of a hurt long ago
When I vowed there and then
To hide in the shadow

And now clearly I see
Through salty tears
No lesson was learned
After all these years

    Strange how what we thought we’d never forget gets lost in the pattern of life…enjoyed your poem.
