I've been forgotten by a friend
Scolded by a stern parent
Disappointed by a bad grade
It doesn't matter what the loss, but I'm crying
Weeping, sobbing, bawling until I die of dehydration
It just keeps on coming
I'm just not getting happy
My sleeve is wet
The tissue box is empty
My eyes are glassy
I'm not even that miserable
But I cry more
Till my sockets are swollen
My eyes are bloodshot
If I wasn't deplorable before, I am now
A series of unanswerable "whys" go through my mind
Why, why, why, what am I doing?
It's not until you see me crying
The tear marks streaking down my cheek in lines
And I'm gathered up in your embrace
And held against your chest so I can hear your heart
That I start thinking
"Maybe crying's not so bad."
And I forget why I was upset in the 1st place.
