¡We can no longer be a bunch of empty minds living in critical times refusing to recognize real lies!

I CRY BECAUSE...

Between the illusive here and now
Between the spaces
My heart races
Around and around
Trying NOT to conquer itself!

…And when the distance gets you
Defying
Crying
Sighing
Lying
Whying…
How I wish you could start flying!

And I wouldn’t have to fall to my knees
@ A thought that seems unsound
Taking me around and around
Like a merry-go-round
While you try to find and be found…

This life is a darkly lit pit
And with it
We just have to sit in the shit,
And I think how sad
That many of us don't feed our life
We just live in such a self-imposed revolving strife
And I wonder,
Who
What
And why
You live such a lie

I cry because…
I am drowned in your sorrow
For I know
It’s not about poor you or me,
But rather poor us.
What affects one, affects us all.
We are in this together whether we want to be or not.
I feel
The woes
The angst
The anger
And the hurt that comes with being you!

Be it your self-esteem,
Be it you are a top or bottom,
Be it the feelings of loneliness that overwhelms you
Be it you seeking pleasure and desire outside of yourself.

I don’t have to be you
So I cry because…

  2. This will tie in with the new two posts I have coming up. I used to get pissed off when I cried about things beyond my control, but then again, crying is also beyond control sometimes, and it's ok to cry. We're human, and we can't keep it together all the time.
