When you've cried yourself totally out, you will know when you cry that last tear that this is enough and I'm done crying. Not one more tear will I give up for this reason. And I move on.
I like your poem and I love the picture. When I first saw the picture, and with the poem last tear, I immediately thought of Johnson & Johnson No More Tears shampoo!

Oh my - your poem in combination with that compelling picture - gives a person reason to feel badly for that person crying. Good one line poem - it flowed well (so to speak)

I must say, I liked your formatting for this one lined poem. It gives your poem and an edge I reckon. To have no tears left to cry screams of heartache. I enjoyed this one, good luck !

The author's words are sweet, creative and interesting. I liked the
style of this poem. I pondered on the theme of this poem. The
poem flows and connects well. The artwork is great and compliments
both the theme and words of this poem. Great work Sally!

Very creative and different approach to a one line poem! I like the format. And I also enjoyed the way you captured and expressed your sentiments on pain and loss in just one line. Great illustration to go with it. Should do well in the contest.

A one liner is a hard challenge. I think you nailed the emotion. I can relate. My older granddaughter is very emotional. As a toddler, more so. I remember the times she soaked my clothes with her precious tears. :-))

There is redundancy in your write but its hyperbole adds to the impact.

Perhaps you might consider a rephrase?

"my last tear rolled down ..."

Good luck in the contest.

Blessings Julia

I'm guessing maybe the "Shift" key on old e's typewriter was broken. In any case, I love this one - it paints a picture and evokes an emotion with only one line. It almost calls for a sequel - the good part usually comes after you've shed your last tear.

So sad, but poetically said. It calls to mind, what the tears are about. For whom and why. Indeed, what is the untold story behind the words? The picture even makes it more poignant. Loren

You already had a good cry and last drop of tear already soaked your dress; well said, well done. Liked and enjoyed the read. Write to Inspire, Change.
