These tears are dry, and I can't cry.

These walls are suddenly closing in on me
Every breath, every scream go unnoticed.
This pain, this anguish, this reason can't be defined
Hurting inside, I let go of everything
What matters doesn't count, what's here will stay.
I can't escape, I can't get through this barrier that enrages my soul
I'll say I'm okay only to trick my own self.
Even strength can't benefit me in this fight.
What is lost will not be returned no matter how much I try.
This depression won't let me live, this depression wont let me think.
These tears won't last for a minute
They're dry, and I can't cry.

This life thats lived is broken in a piece of shattered glass
trying, even now, will fail with the heart of mine.
What use to be alive is now a dead memory.
Forgetting will be impossible for it'll always be there.
My eyes are blurry, this face is erased.
My tears won't last for a second
They're dry, and I can't cry.

Crying children, screaming monsters
Thunderstorms and heartache
Suicide and temptation.
They will follow where I go.
For I'm chained to my destiny.
My future is a constant blurr.
Will I make it or will I fail?
Tears that stain my cheeks won't last much longer.
They're dry, and I can't cry.

The ending in a movie is the ending in this life.
I tried and I failed.
For these lungs have collapsed,
this body has became useless.
In another world I'll seek salvation
In another world is where I'll stand.
These boundaries have been broken.
This mind has made a decision.
I'll take a last step, and I won't turn back.
These tears no longer pour like rain.
They're dry, and I won't cry.

Wow, I love all how you use words on this one. It's like I can picture exactly what you're portraying and feel exactly what you're describing. Nice job!

Thank you. :] I wasn't going to post this because I was unsure if I described the meaning right or not. Thanks for the feedback
