Tears Are For the Weak

You broke my heart
I vowed the same
You walked out on me
I slammed the door behind you
It felt good
I was happy, hysterical
I sought to hurt you
As you unto me
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

You walked into my life
You swept me off my feet
I returned your feelings
But I saw finality to us
You didnít and never thought of the end
You saw a future
And showed it to me
And I embraced it
Accepting that it could be
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

We completed each other
Together were could have been one
We were there for each other
Despite the fights that hurt us
We fought back against it
Time and again
Proving that we were one
One that could withstand
The ultimate end
The test of time
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

We proved them wrong
We were happy
They doubted it
ButÖthey were right
They had foresight
We lacked it, our eyes blinded
We locked out the negative
Our world rose coloured
Even in the darkest nights
And coldest days
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

We were close
Even when we were apart
Distance is just a world
And not in our hearts
They saw only the world around
Nothing else existed
Save the sweetness
That was our world
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

Our feelings were one
One in the same
You said it
And I mirrored it
Showing others what we had
And what they lacked
They could be jealous
Some were
They couldnít have we had
They were unlucky
Now they are lucky
They wonít be hurt
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

In closeness we drifted
I drifted from you
And you from me
Our distance a reality
It was oceans
The water was our barrier
Even the fire of your soul
Couldnít vanish the growing waves
That I welcomed with my soul
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

Our world collapsed
The light vanished behind the clouds
The rain began to fall
The air grew cool
The wind whipped around
Blowing everything into chaos
Only a few things did we grasp
And do we now vainly cling to
It is so little
As our world remains on tooth pick legs
The frailest of wood
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

Lightening struck in a flash
Cold water fell on me
My anger grew and festered
You were the victim
As the waves crashed down
Separating our souls
Stranding us apart
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

Silently you kept your anger
You said nothing
Even when I expressed mine
Thine was contained within
And your silence was a glaive
It fell, shrouding us
From what was not to be known
NaÔvetť was the foundation
Upon which our world grew
ĎTwas weak grounding
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

Understanding is just a word
One we pretended to know
Neither of us truly did
That was our weakness
We said nothing
Our other shortcoming
We spoke in riddles of silence
Expecting understanding
Bur getting nothing
Our ignorance the barrier
And the translator
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

We had misconceptions
They formed our illusions
Which we found a naÔve solace in
That was shattered
When our world fell
Itís only a crystal ball
And it broke
The millions are tiny
The shards are sharp
None can be salvaged
Less we bleed
The blood which could fall
Never will for neither of us
YouÖmeÖ
Will never put it back together
You didnít cry
And neither did I

Tears are for the weak
They are the barest of our souls
Something only we saw
A special connection
A fragile sensation
The world inside the rose glass
Is only a dream
Then we wake up
And face the cold world
And wonder where we go from here
I turn away
And we go our own ways
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

The sun sets
The moon rises
And the tide retreats
The night has come
In the darkness we leave
We bury us
And become two
Our souls apart
Our hearts in pieces
But I didnít cry
Tears are for the weak

A new day will dawn
But until then
I will wander alone
Trying to find myself
I lost myself when I became one
I will find her
And become one with myself
