A Piece Missing?

Why can't I cry?
Feeling alone and down
satiated pain
and a black cloud shroud
Breathing is a chore
Smiling is fake
Cheerful is just an 8 letter word
And tears, I want to make
Someone send me a smile
First class, delivered tonight
Erase me and draw me out again
in colour, not black and white
But i know that isn't possible
And I know why
i want to let this hurting out
But i cannot cry?
