This creative response to the One Line Poem prompt is effective in representing the downward path of the last tear of "a good cry."

I like this, but never could relate to the writing style of E. E. Cummings, which I regard as rendering his message unnecessarily hard to read, just to be different. Your simple vertical word arrangement does not give that impression.

Superb, and aptly illustrated.

Yes, I always thought it interesting that cummings always used small letters when writing his name. I wonder what that means? This is great as is everything you do and I hope you do well in the contest.

What a clever way to write a one-line poem. It resonates with me in a way I can't explain. I felt the downward pattern of your words represented tears falling. Good luck in the contest.

Your posting tugs at the emotions of readers as they read down the line and absorb its message. The eyes of the tearful child stare right at you and seem to be begging for understanding. For being so short, this is a very powerful work.

A very well-written one-line poem about the last tear we cry. There is no more tears when we are soaking wet and our soul is drained. It is then time to start rewater the soul.

You have made excellent use of all of your syllables in this emotional, moving poetic statement made by one with no more tears to shed. I didn't know a one-line poem could be formatted like this.

Sometimes we just start crying for some reason or another then we finally run out of tears. I know this by experience in my life lately.

    Thank you very much for the sweet review and kind compliments. I know how hard it is to lose someone so dear and loved and to be cried out. I actually thought of you when I was writing this knowing that?s probably how you?ve felt, too.
    Sending you my best today as well.

Hi Sally. In my hillbilly writing style, it never occurred to me that a one line poem could be a vertical line. The last tear complete the soaking of the dress. That is poignant. (even as a hillbilly I know some slightly big words.) I like the content and the construction of the poem. Very Nice Z

    I?m just trying to cause a riot here on FanStory with this out of the box style. I?m getting a little bored with myself. I liked the outcome and posted as fast as I could before I changed my mind. So glad you like. I?m from North Georgia, so relatively close to being a hillbilly myself. Thank you for the kind review of my one liner.

    I liked it. Poetic license is defined by the poet. I thought it was very clever. Z
