But I am too weak...

This hole in my chest; the one you can’t feel,

Is the one that you made and choose not to heal.

I’m hurting so much; I cannot express,

While, there you are not caring any less.

 

And so here I am tasting my tears,

The salt in my mouth and all of my fears.

I tell you I’m hurting but what will that do?

Your words are unkind; I cry cause of you.

 

Being unable to just make you care,

I thought that for me you’d always be there.

I cannot erase this pain deep inside,

Or undo the tears that I have cried.

 

I try to speak up; you disregard what I say,

Instead your response: “Toughen up, Jay”.

You wish not to care but I still do not know,

Why the valor I lack is to just let you go.
