The Tears that Were Never Shed

I feel like i want to cry
Sometimes i feel like i want to die
I never stop wondering why
I always try
At times i wish for a drive-by
I'm not sure where
my life went awry
But i wish i could go back there
and tell myself, "Just cry."

It's fingers perfectly fit
It has a tight grip on the deepest part of me
I can't avoid it
It's like i can never be free
This beast is consuming me
It won't let me be
No matter how hard i try
I wish i would've told myself "Just cry."
