Let the Tears Fall

September 1, 2007
By Cliona Roberts, Katonah, NY

I can feel the burning At the back of my throat But still no tears come Yours flow like raging rivers But not a drop comes From my dry eyes I don't know why I cannot break down And show you the other Side of me The side where I'm scared Where I want to tear myself up You can release your feelings so effortlessly But if I let go And show you my fears And vulnerability My cover will be blown I can hide from this chaotic world By putting on a brave face And learning when the time is Right to let go and show your emotions But that time never seems right And when it does my heart Tells me to stop And the nagging fear of What you will think Holds me back Why can't I let just One tear fall For you to see That I'm not as strong As you think
