I finally cried

Poetry By: Tesseth

They break up cuz she doesn't show her emotions, so he never knew that she really did love him...This is alittle longer than I usually write. It played like a song in my head...to the tune of Blue October's 'Hate Me' (I love that song!)

You held my face in your hands
You told me "This is 'the time'""
Said you had to leave me now
Though you couldn't answer why

Now I'm on my knees alone
Clinging to the bedroom floor
Wond'ring what I could've done
Wond'ring what I'm waiting for

Then you walked out of the house
Didn't even say "Goodbye"
Remember you always said
That you hated when girls cry?

But here I am all alone
Just a shadow in the gloom
Convulsing in all my tears
Afraid to run from this room

I can't stand the thought of losing you
But my legs won't lift me now
I want to chase you, pleading
How can you just leave me-- how?

Here I am now, like a broken corpse
Crumpled here hugging the ground
I can't stand, I try to scream
But my mouth won't make a sound

I'm left here bleeding, wounded
Confused beyond my belief
I want to call after you
"How can YOU do this to me?"

I won't, I knew I couldn't
I could never try to ask
I have nothing to give him
I wasn't up to this task

Then like waking from a dream
I shake my head, wipe my eyes
I whisper to the emptiness
"You finally made me cry"

I'd been so strong all along
Too much for my own good
Not sharing much of myself
Now it's been misunderstood

I know he wanted to hear
Exactly how I had felt
He just needed to know that
I loved him and no one else.

What I'd taken as weakness
Was just now making some sense
If I'd just said I loved him
Then he never would have left...
