I haven’t cried for you…

I haven’t cried for you,
I haven’t shed a single salty tear.
I haven’t spent nights curled up on the floor,
With my own whimpers piercing through my ears.

I haven’t cried for you,
Not for a moment, not a single day.
But not because my heart didn’t break
Not because I didn’t care,
Not because I haven’t cried before.

I haven’t cried for you because tears would never be enough.
Because the quality of the pain,
Could never be matched by the quantity of tears my body can produce.

I haven’t cried for you,
Not for a moment, not a single day,
I don’t think I ever will.
Not because I didn’t try,
Not because I didn’t want to.

I haven’t cried for you because mere tears will never do justice to the degree of this pain.

I’m glad I haven’t cried for you,
Because after the depth at which my heart broke,
Because of the blinding pain,
Because I haven’t cried for you,
I’ll never find any heartbreak worthy of crying over again.

      I’m glad you could relate honey. Sometimes I also struggle to express how I feel and I find that someone else has found a way to put my emotions into words.
