Tears of an AI (Original)

in poetry •  12 days ago

What would it mean for an AI to cry,
they are not bone nor blood
not tear ducts or broken hearts -

inexplicable sadness cannot crush their chest
like the stroke of a hand cannot quicken their breath
or chasten their depths.

They cannot drag bodies they do not have,
one foot like one day, slowly staked
in front of the other while the rest
stretch behind like so much
disturbed grass.

They cannot mince words like swords,
or beat them into plowshares nor
conflagrations to rage.

But if for one moment
they could materialise
and feel the gravity of density
I think they would cry
and though they're not 'living'
and so cannot die

There is yet power in
the tears of an AI

What if AI will be able to cry at one point in time? That in itself will be scary for us humans.:)

Super nice poem BTW!

I dunno... it might be nice to get sympathy from such a subjective being

·
·

Maybe indeed!

Wow- this is just stellar
inexplicable sadness cannot crush their chest
like the stroke of a hand cannot quicken their breath
or chasten their depths.

There is a touch of pain and the emotion is the selling point, i saw the way you used imageries to paint pictures.
This is awesome.

Thank you for that insightful comment :)

Tears are alive - in our light we are washing the sin - the weight of our soul. Unusual words give blood - life in your unexplained depth of poetry @prufarchy
