*what Makes You Cry?

What makes you cry?
I pray it’s not always me
As you have convinced me many times
The real me
Would never try to hurt you

I know you are in pain
And probably hate me.
But you don’t hate me
As much as you miss me
Truth be known

I show more of a tendency
To abandon you to your locked closet
Of whore’s clothes and dildos….
You are predictably stronger
Than most souls
I encounter in the deafening mist of empty dreams

What makes you cry, when I’m not to blame?

    Just the frustrations of existing fruitlessly can make anyone cry especially when desires are unfullfilled.Hope you are feeling better.
