I Cried

I Cried

- Shelly-Ann Daley Novemeber 2008


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.
