When tears aren’t enough…

When tears you could never cry,
And yet can now hardly be stopped,
Are not enough…
When it doesn’t soothe you to be numb
Because there’s nothing which can
Numb you enough…
When sleep leaves you frightened
And life is in endless pain
When life is not enough…
Nobody can see your daily fight
Nobody can see that just breathing
Is just enough. And all that’s left.
If your legs are broken
They expect you to stop walking.
But when your heart and mind are broken…
They expect you to keep your heart beating…
And your mind going…
They can’t see you’ve had enough…
They can’t see the pained smile…
The weariness in your eyes
As you choke on grief which rips you
And scream in pain of torture…
That pain I always feel… that corkscrew never goes…
They just tell you that you’re strong…
But the strongest man in the world can’t
Run with a completely broken body…
Why must I still run with a broken heart?
Strength just means it’s taken longer
To break me.
That’s all.
Why can’t anyone hear me when I say
“I’ve had enough.”

Tears are not enough…. and neither are my pleas…
