And I Cry Silently




And I promised myself
I wouldn’t do it again
To myself
Like those innumerable times
When several others
Were to be tried


Pushing you away
Is the toughest
I’ve known
In my lifetime
To determine
How long before you’d return
For the me
I tried seeing in your eyes
And would your roads ever cross
The junction
Where we last spoke
And without warning
I stated
It’s all going wrong
And am yet to be figured out

I saw you walk away
Without ever getting to know
How it felt to you
And I cry silently
