Sound of Tears

She woefully knelt
to garner her tears;
words of pain fell
to tell her fears-
but betrayed,
only silence
peaked
to speak.

This is so expressive of the mood..only change I would suggest is to change garner to gather

I thought "garner" is more poetic. As a synonym of "gather", I just would like to know how does it for a native speaker just like you work better, if you don't mind, please.
Thanks again for visiting and the thoughts.

This one is a pure distillation of sorrow.
Most excellent.

This is a great poem. It conveys "to me" someone who is deeply troubled and turns to prayer for solace and relief - maybe praying out loud. But then someone overhears and betrays those thoughts and feelings to others, so words are no longer spoken - silence prevails and all that can be heard is the sound of tears.

I think you have skilfully said a lot in few word - and your poem really shows how trapped a person can be.
( if my interpretation is correct )

Well done! ( I think Raj's suggestion is worth thinking about )

Love Mand xxx

I loved to see where this took your imagination. It just came to me in a moment of muse and couldn't resist the idea of collecting the tears ...etc.
I always appreciate the time that friends give and the way others interpret the words written.
I wanted to extend this to a story, but it is all I got for the time being.
Thanks for sharing and the time. Always appreciated.

❤❤❤❤❤❤
