the effort it takes to hold back the tears
becomes more and more trying
with more and more crying
and more and more denying

and more and more wanting
to let the flood rain
to let the blood drain
to let the song refrain

to let the tears fall
upon the pain deep within
upon the past in chagrin
upon the now where i’ve been

upon the horizon of my soul
where the colors blur
and where the bitters stir
and where the nothings occur

and where the promises get pushed
further and further away

so here in my tears i stay
my mind in disarray
please offer no cliche’

because my heart no longer
wants to come out and play
