Why Can't I Cry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My grandfather died
So why can't I cry?
He's shut in a casket
You can't see his face
So where are my tears?

Dead and cold
To be placed in the ground
Why do I have no emotions?

It confuses me to no end
I'm not cold
I'm sensitive
I care
So why can't I cry?
I'm not heartless
I have compassion
So where are my tears?

And yet the closest thing
I feel to emotion
Is a sort of void
A bit of emptiness

But my grandfather is dead
And I still have no answer
To the question plaguing me
Why can't I cry?
