Make A Crying Woman Cry Harder - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

Because I closed my eyes to reality my whole world became a phantasy
I spent my life in an artificial situation
I gave my sincere love to a false-hearted man

There were two of us in an unreal world in which I alone lived
Death would have been sweeter if I had lived first
I was a slave to desperation simply because I wanted

I closed my eye to reality, my whole world became a phantasy
Man, you know what you did for me all those years
You made a crying woman cry harder

My tears became rain drops, my dark clouds blended in with the night
Hid what little light the moon and stars gave
For years the tears had rebelled remaining steadfast within

I was already crying
I thought all of me would capsize and drown in my reservoir of hurt
I shut most of me out so you may be in
I gave you practically all of me, I didn’t exist

I wanted emotional support
The only time I received attention was
When you wanted to

You made a crying woman cry harder

I love me now
I’m not all those negative things singing a sad song
Making me feel all wrong for wanting to explore
Finally adore, the real me

I’m a beautiful woman, I see, I feel, I know the goodness of myself
I’m willing to cry, sorrow brought joy
