Tears.

by Samantha   Jan 19, 2019


I cry.
For all the pieces of me I gave.
For all the pieces of me you took.

I cry.
For all the good days, best days that we lost.
For all the good days, best days that we ruined.

I cry.
For all the time you spent breaking me.
For all the time you spent not loving me.

I cry.
For all the what if’s and could be’s.
For all the what is and what isn’t.

I cry.
For all the nights spent wishing for you.
For all the nights spent wishing for us.

I cry.
For all the days I sit in regret.
For all the days I sit in hate.

I cry.
For all the memories I have kept.
For all the memories I want to forget.

I cry.
For all of me.
For all of you.

I cry.
I cry.
I cry.

    The repetition really works very well here. Sometimes it is good to cry to get things out of your system but crying for too long can become damaging. Take care. Milly x

    Yes, a very sad piece indeed and the repetition made it sound like an uncontrollable cry which just doesn't stop. Well written and I hope this has helped you trying to get it all out and hopefully moving on to higher grounds.

      The uncontrollable cry is exactly what I was trying to capture. Yes, writing this piece has helped me release certain emotions that needed to come to light. Thank you!!

    An emotional poem, no doubt, and I hope someday that the tears won't always mean loss, whether loss of memories or moments of joy. That the tears won't always symbolize the past and wanting to forget or that chaotic in between when moving on from something or someone.

    Tears are tricky that way, because it's not always black and white, and often bittersweet instead. You captured that well here.

    My advice is to...cry. But only for a certain time. Let all the emotion in, let it wash over you and then just say 'enough'. Easy to say, but crying can get the better of you after too long.

    Take care and all the very best,

    Ben
