JUST A POEM BY A SEMI`-POET

WHY NOT CRY?
 
Why you may ask, I cry so long and deem?.. Is it true then, that your concern is real?, have you ever had a thorn in your heart that burns you like a spear?...
Is it true then, that you have not seen the face of solitude laughing right before your heart starts bleeding and your brain strives to kill the memoirs of your loved ones?
No?.. Is it for real you would like to know?:
The reason I cry is not to be known by everyone, only you should this know; I cry and have been crying since the day you left; - But I am here you may say- in fact you are; but where are you anyway?.
I feel your distance in my skin and your aloofness in my heart; even the mirror knows you are here no more; even the mirror knows there shall be no peace until you turn back and see the flower you stepped on; will you perhaps water, watch, and care? I do not know… shall I cry not then? Why, why not cry?.
