All I Have Is Just One Tear

from a place I didn't know
existed inside of me,
came a pain that hit me low,
made me scream in agony

weak, still clawing my way out
of this deep, bottomless pit
suffocated by my doubt
lost, at the end of my wit

the pain, it tore me apart
gleefully shredding within
destroying my helpless heart
to describe it I can't begin

put my fingers to my face
and feel the tear out of place

The author's comments:
I had to stop telling myself all these lies.
Because when I looked into his eyes,
And I saw that gone was the electricity,
I simply knew he no longer cared for me.
I know I have to move on,
Now that I know our love is gone.
But as hard as I might try,
I don't seem able to cry.

Wow, this is so sad..Its amazing! I love the wording you used. And I know how you feel I've been through this before, and to this day I still have not cried a tear. It's hard to move on too because I still really haven't. Deep down inside I know this, but I can never tell him. But hey everything is going to be okay. Great Job by the way! Hope to read more
