I Could Cry

I feel like I could cry
I feel like I could cry for a thousand years
And you wouldn’t even know
But my mind stops the tears
My mind takes control
For so long it has prevented this weakness
Shut tight against a leakage
But tonight in the darkness
Tonight my mind loses the battle
Water spills over, inconsolable
Only in the night when others sleep
Only alone where spirits speak
Here I surrender the flood gates
Here I surrender to the tearing pain
Only in the night, alone with the truth
Reflections of a life skewed from dreams
I cry a thousand tears
Making them stop before someone wakes
