Concrete

I crept up on you
And saw your child-like tears
Slide down your rosy cheeks
Drip drop and splash at your feet
I managed a smile
But your face is stone cold
I hate those drops of salty crystals
I want to your laughter to fill my heart
But your voice is locked away
I hate your silence of abandon
You do have emotion
I know, I’ve seen it once or twice
Let it go, my beautiful friend
It’s all swept away like auburn leaves
I’m right here with you
And I whisper, “You’re ok.”
But nothing breaks the seal
Like concrete, you’re rigid
Frozen in a somber breath
I hold your hand in mine
Taking care, like you’ll shatter
Please say something
Let me know you’re still here
But the tears still drip drop
Splashing over the wintry ground
Let me turn off the faucet
Shut off the valve and hold me again
But, nothing
A raging fire envelopes my heart
You’re gone forever and that’s the end
I let my guard down
And let go of my own fear
It wells up inside of me
Until the brink of spilling over
I let the clear jewels slip onto my face
They crawl down my own rosy cheeks
I let them mix with yours
Now I am stone; concrete and rigid
And here we are; statues among the living

sorry about the typo in the sentence, "I want to your laughter in my heart." It's supposed to read, "I want your laughter to fill my heart." Once again, sorry for the typo!
