Lost Tears

Those words of denial hurt me
a shattered heart
refusing to love or be loved
for love meant pain
without mercy
never-ending
unrelenting
unkind
unkind words unable to see
they left me blind
outside of darkness
I didn’t exist
as words pierced my soul
until all I crave is silence
serenity
tranquility
to dry the lost tears
a man should never cry
but cry they must
as the past becomes like dust
to pull together the shards
of a broken heart
