Do You See These Tears?

September 7, 2009

I cry
As I lie awake in bed,
Stuck with your voice running through my head,
Wondering why you said what you said.
You didn't love me -
How hard could it be
To say what you wanted right from the start?
We were never meant to be apart.
All that you did, it was so low;
I'll always wonder why you let go.

I try to make my pain into beauty.

The endings to your stories are all wonderful.
