When your best.. Just isn't good enough.

Just a thought

You left me lonely..
on this day..
Crying tears filled
with pain
With rage..
Black tears falling.
Like dark slippery oil
on the ground..
Black tears falling..
I slip as I try
to stand..
I only wanted
your friendship.
When I came to you..
open arms
open wounds..
I came to you..
With your
S y n t h e t i c
Not able to see my ..
tears ..
Streaming down..
Black on white..
Oil stained love..
On this night.
Not caring..
No open arms..
Tears you cry .
You cry for you..
And you alone.
You have no
For others pain.
I cry black tears..
Thick and slippery
black as oil..
Falling on the ground..
Trying hard to stand..
Falling into
this blackness..
That flows from my eyes..
Why you don't see..
I am alive..
Don't need your open arms..
for my broken heart..
Don't need you at all..
When I fall apart
I will learn to stand..
And when I stand..
I will learn to walk..
And when I walk
I will walk..
Away from you..
Leaving my black tears..
dark and wet upon the ground..
Trapping you in your
moment of
Until you learn ..
To walk or die..
and then my love..
It will be too late
for good bye..
As you wallow in
black tears..
That I cried from
my heart..
Never will you have
this chance again..
This chance I gave you
to be a friend.
