No Tears...



Another tangent poem of mine that's a work in progress best suited, I feel, to song rather than word but until such time I find the melody....I shall share with you the piece in its VERY raw state!


NO TEARS


I won't cry now you are leaving

 I swore you'd never see me cry.

I'll wear this smile that's so deceiving

But the pretence helps me get by.



I won't walk into our bedroom

And see us lying there

I'll close my eyes on all the good times

And let you think that I don't care.



I won't listen to our old songs

I'll find new ones of my own

Even though the music we made

Plays in my mind when I'm alone



I won't linger over old photographs

Reliving how we used to be

You don't need to know those images

Are etched in my memory



I won't see you both together

And die some more inside

I'll be stronger now than ever

Just too weak to lift that lie
