And all of the sudden, I just wanted to cry.

-

The birds, they silenced,

The people pointed and laughed,

As I bailed my eyes out,

And knew that I was making a fool out of myself.

-

I don't know what came over me,

I'm not sure where the water came from…

But it's over now.

And I'm still crying.

-

The flood just descended freely,

Like a glacier melting in the sun…

And my face swelled up like a balloon.

The headache keeps on coming.

-

Why does it hurt so much,

Just to let it all out?

Why am I so tired, of holding it all in?

Why does the crowd whisper "She's pathetic"?

-

The time has come for me to realize,

It's not all pretty flowers,

And magical powers,

That seem to make it all alright.

-

I just want you to know, however,

That you were the one that killed my childhood dreams.

You pulled out my heart

And picked out every vein.

-

You made sure it would never beat again.

And it never will.
