    i cry
    ((drip))
    tonight
    ((drop))
    and i cry
    ((drip))
    as i lie
    ((drop))
    you ask me
    ((drip))
    how i be
    ((drop))
    and i lie
    ((drip))
    effortlessly
    ((drop))
    i stand in
    ((drip))
    my reflection
    ((drop))
    as i fear
    ((drip))
    lookin' in the mirror
    ((drop))
    what i see
    ((drip))
    is just me
    ((drop))
    still pretty
    ((drip))
    to me
    ((drop))
    but my head
    ((drip))
    says i'm loveless
    ((drop))
    as i look in
    ((drip))
    this reflection
    ((drop))
    the tears fall
    ((drip))
    and they crawl
    ((drop))
    down my face
    ((drip))
    to erase
    ((drop))
    the pain of
    ((drip))
    feeling unloved
    ((drop))
    unbeautiful
    ((drip))
    unsuccussful
    ((drop))
    this woman
    ((drip))
    has hid so long
    ((drop))
    but now she sings
    ((drip))
    her new song
    ((drop))
    and each tear
    ((drip))
    cries a fear
    ((drop))
    as she lifts her face
    ((drip))
    into God's embrace
    ((drop))
    and each tear
    ((drip))
    each pain
    ((drop))
    each fear
    ((drip))
    all the rain
    ((drop))
    each yell
    ((drip))
    each scream
    ((drop))
    none of this
    ((drip))
    is a dream
    ((drop))
    drip...
    drop
    drip...
    drop
    drip...
    drop
    drip...
    drop

    the tears fall...

    i guess i should explain that this is about me...and all the tears i've cried for the past few weeks with my cancer...i've just finally come to learn that sometimes crying is the best outlet of pain...

    Lovely...once again you take my emotions hostage with your work
    and I can't help but feel you...
    Very emotive and artfully scribed!
    As beautiful as this is, it's also true...crying is sometimes
    just the release we need.
