The Crying Want In ME (A Song)


I cant control what I feel
I cant tell my heart there is nothing left
I cant control what is real
I would only be lying to myself

Colors of the rainbow belong
I guess I’ll have to tell my heart a lie
A night without stars would be wrong
But I am not ready to cry

A sunset without eyes to see
A love without passion cant be
A heart that is blind to a love used to be
Its hard to fight the crying want in me

I’d rather just lie to my heart and deny
And keep believing as time it goes by
For all that is left keep lying to self
Because I am not ready to cry

I am not ready to cry, see the truth beyond lies
The heavens without stars would be wrong
I’m not ready to cry so to self I will lie
For in my heart I am just not that strong

A sunset without eyes to see
A love without passion cant be
A heart that is blind to a love used to be
Its hard to fight the crying want in me.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
