9 Unworthy Tears


9 unworthy tears down my face
9 unworthy tears leave a dark trace
The tears aren't really comming from my eyes
They're comming from the soul that's inside

I'm all scrambled up, don't know which way is up
I can't stand your drama, I've had enough
I can't spell, sing or write. I can't even think
Theres a heartbreak up ahead. I'm on the brink

I trusted you with my heart
I let you play with it because
I thought maybe the 'like' we had
Just might turn to love

I gave it a chance, let myself go
And I just wanted you to know
You have activated my fears
And now I'm cryin 9 unworthy tears

1 is for the beginning
2 is for the end
3 is for believing
You were my best friend

4 is for what we shared
5 is for... well i don't know
but 6 is for 'I thought you cared'
7, i'm cryin and let it show

I don; t want you to know you hurt me
That's why #8 sucks
But #9 is the hardest tear
9 is for the trust.

    Wow. I loved the ryhming in this one. It seems to kind of playfully display the hurt and the pain while TOTALLY displaying the message. Loved it, as usual (Report) Reply

    ok, kiddo, story time. this reminds me of the time i cried like 8 or 9 times last year because this guy that liked me didn't want to be with me...it just kinda hit again when i read this. *pats on shoulder* you're not the only one, kid.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
