Tears do not fall tonight Even though my soul is crying. I’m sinking again And wish I could escape by flying. Internally, this sadness Feels like a huge weight. I’m weary of carrying it And long for it to abate. Today I longed For someone to reach out. Instead I sat Alone in my hideout. Tonight I feel on the edge Of something yet unknown. I’m unsure how, or if, to move forward Completely on my own.
