I won’t let these tears fall

from beneath my eyelids

and trickle down my face

to burn the wounds I feel

 

Because if I do, I’ll know

I’ve really lost your love

and I’ll lack the strength

to take back my heart

 

This watery vision does

nothing for my confusion

My shuddering breaths

do nothing for my soul

 

I’m withdrawing into me

to hide into dark places

Because I feel the hurt

from me that stabs you

 

But that won’t stop the

first tear from escaping

and cutting deep, it only

makes the others follow
