Holding Back The Tears


A picture that gets smeared in white
And my fragrance that seems to have faded away
All get concealed by
The glaring cloud

My heart that has no words
Slowly starts to move by feeling
Those times that slipped through
Are in my hands

I’m holding back the tears…

I walk
Trying to lessen
To weight of my heart
To a place
That is neither close nor far
Where a different me stands
I will not cry

I bring my two hands together again
To a place that will hear it
As I live though these
Unmemorable times

Though it seems stupid
We’re always together
The pain that I
Want to let go
Dries the tears that flows
Through my body

I’m living with my tears…

I walk
Trying to lessen
To weight of my heart
To a place
That is neither close nor far
Where a different me stands
I will not cry

I’m holding back the tears...

I run
Adding to the
Weight of my faith
To a place
That is neither high nor low
Where a different me stands again
With a small smile
I can laugh…
