Cry - Poem by Felipe Herrera
Cry like the earth has passed.
Cry like your love will never last.
Cry like the sun is black.
Cry like your leg has cracked.
Cry until you get back up.
Smile, cheer, get upset and cry again like a pup.
Keep crying until your heart feels content.
We know your time is being well spent.
Instead of having me to hold your hand
Cry until I see nothing but bland.
Why do you cry, you know I love you.
Why do you cut, can't I get a clue?
I'm afraid your life will soon no longer last
If you keep crying your pain isn't going to pass
You feel like there is nobody to talk to
But you have me, and I will follow through.
I stand above your grave wondering why I wasn't enough
Now I feel like wanting to cut.
