The man of steel knows not how to cry.
He comes and goes never staying long but,
he seems not to care if you look deep in his eyes.
What will happen if he cries?

Would his steel break down?
His armor disintegrate,
Would he die?
If someone saw him cry?

She threatens to leave him.
This doesn't bring him home,
only a promise that is never fulfilled.
If she left, would he cry?

His steel would grow thicker,
his armor never disintegrating.
It's a lie, she would never leave.
So he will never cry.

Every lie looms above, slowly building,
like a cloud
until it sighs, letting rain fall
he doesn't cry.

A death occurs.
He does not see,
even when his little girl dies inside,
he does not cry.

The man of steel knows not how to cry.
He comes and goes never staying long but,
he seems to care if you look deep in his eyes.
What will happen if he cries?
