    have you ever tried to make yourself cry?
    have you cried so uncontrollably you thought you would die?
    why?
    was it pain?

    have you cried so hard you couldn't say the name?
    did the tears feel like flames burning up your cheeks?

    when you sobbed at the job, did you ball up and hide?
    was it out of respect or because of your pride?

    did you weep before going to sleep?
    did you wake up with a sigh?
    what was your alibi?
    why?
    was it pain?

    have you boo hoo'd so bad it hurt your brain?
    when your attitude changed
    and your mucus membrane inflammed,
    did you blow your nose or let it drain?

    whose fault was it?
    for whom is to blame?
    did you cry when they went away?
    why?
    was it pain?

    what the hell are you crying for?
    are you in the same qoute?
    how can you cry a river without a boat?

    will you sink or float?
    will you wash up on the shore?
    have you mourned a lot?
    hasn't somebody mourned more?

    am i sure?
    would i lie?
    just ask yourself
    and with tears i replied with my last breath, sigh
    :crying:

    Sure I've cried that much, and unfortunately there are many who have cried even more. Great word choice, as usual, a well written piece.
