Acid tears burn as they trickle

down my cheeks.


black tears,

endless sorrow.

I stand here

alone in this windy street

and weep.

Watch the wind carry me

away from here.

Watch the searing tears

freeze on my face.

Watch, and do nothing.

"I can't go on,"

I want to scream

unheard in the night:

"I'll never be good enough!

Never be good enough for any of you."

Can I just hang my head

and walk away?

But no

I can hear your whispers.

I know what you say.

I know what you think.

I mean nothing…

watch me fade away.
