I Cried


I cried…. for the people I loved,

For the people I did not love.

For the people I tried to love.

For the people I never got to love.

I cried…..

For all the pains I have been through.

For all the pains I will go through.

For all the pains you put me through….

I cried….

Though you never knew. 

Though I never spoke.

The pain, it still lingered.

Like an unpleasant aftertaste.

I looked back and I cried for all these things-

The pain, the guilt, the hurt,

the feeling of being undesirable, unwanted,

unloved… what’s worse than the feeling of unrequited love?

The question is simply answered…. nothing

Nothing worse…. And I cried

Pains of a piercing wound,

Pains of a breaking heart,

pains from the memory of a stopped heart.
