Tears beg and plead

to be released,

to fall slowly down tainted cheeks,

 

and I give in.

 

I cry so much

that I choke on tears,

giving in as always,

but this time it doesn’t help.

This time it doesn’t please.

So why do I give in?

 

It’s habit, I suppose,

and I guess I’ll never learn,

not without a teacher,

but who is there to teach

what nobody knows?

 

Now my cheeks are tainted

more than ever before.

I think I just need someone

that cares.

 

My head is throbbing.

My heart is hurting,

and tears are drying

but won’t be forgotten.

 

Why do I give in?

When it only brings me sadness,

and I want to be happy?

 

Do I need to cry

before I can smile?

Do I have to feel hurt

before feeling loved?

    

 So I wait,

but the smile never comes.

 

I need someone that cares,

but maybe nobody does.

 

Who is there to teach

what nobody knows?
