Tears of departure, NaPoWriMo day 30

Poetic Asides gave “ode” for day 29, and “after leaving here” for the final day.

Ode to the Tears I’ll Cry After Leaving Here

Or, AKA Lacrimae rerum
so silent and grave,
to eternity leading,
from infinity springing
and traversing the world;
Celebrating the welcomes
hostile of the earth,
The cold, loveless breath
of industrial mornings;
Triumphing over the colourful vanity
of painless existence;
Defeating the cynical snapping
of jaws craving hearts.

The tears I’ll cry after I leave
will erect their own temple
and memorial place
for all the leavings
I have
attempted, accomplished, or failed.
