Not Less for Tears

A pit of static in the gut

And he quickly dries his tears.

Chest collapsing in a rut

But no one wants to hear.

No one wants to listen

To his hollow sighs.

They don’t care what has driven

Him to be this traumatized.

A heart better off buried,

Better to mask the ache.

Better to be seen unwearied,

No one wants to see heartbreak.

Well that isn’t in the slightest

How it should be.

Emotional brightness,

Needs to greatly be seen.
