Tears

Tears

How can I feel this way?
How could you love me?
Your heart is bleeding for her
while your eyes are holding me.
This is all just a dream,
a bad scene that won't last.

Why can't I learn not to do this?
How can I teach myself not to fall?

I want to fly away into nothing
and never come back.

Why did you
  call me beautiful
   run after me
    hold me (only but briefly)

I want you to hold me forever
       for now
Don't leave me
       don't love me
Quit breathing her soul.

Look.
Can't you see what's happening?




This is an older poem from many years back. It's one of the (few) not-too-terrible ones.
