    Simple and powerfull and so much is unsaid and yet it is all implied, all the emotions behind the tears come through regardless of detail. What matters is the feeling. Though the enjambed first and second lines gave me pause at first (not typically fond of this device), then I was taken to that single “I” floating at the end of the first line. Hmmm, I think, does this “I” self-centeredly screams “look at what I’ve done for you; it was I”? I can almost hear the emphasis on that single self-referencing syllable. But then “let them quench your soul” softens that initial energy and wishes then well. I get a dichotomy of strong pain and anger and yet a wish for the other party to heal.
