Has my sorrow been spent;
Is that why tears refuse to wash my face?

Standing alone I wait in a nest
where realisation awakens those around me.
Falling (or rather failing) to their whim, one by one,
another one a slave to their emotions.

Bodies shaking;
throat aching;
eyes ablaze;
with blinded rage.

Until I saw the image of you
come to rapture me too,
make vulnerable with your devotion;
suffocate me.

But I could not cry for you see
my pain was internally.
Instead I began to ask:
Has my sorrow been spent?
