I don’t cry much” she said

It’s just not my way

If I trust you, it’s with words

From my heart…for you and no one else.


You can be who you are with me

I understand

I love you for who you are, tears of no

I see your soul”

I’ll hold your heart

I’ll catch your fall


And she believed those lies

And when her tears finally fell,

They fell double…in pain and betrayal

A torrent barely leaving a trace on dry, barren ground
