He Said I Wanted to Cry

Updated on July 15, 2012

He would lock me in a room

And scream until I cried

My tears meant nothing to him

He said I wanted to cry

He said it was just another way

Of feeling sorry for myself

After awhile I think I actually believed him

My tears were not his fault

They were just a sign of my weakness

I needed to be stronger

But now I see that hating my tears

Was like hating the blood

That pours out of a wound

It means no harm

It's just trying to help you heal

I think he secretly loved my tears

To him they meant he won

      This reminds me about the mother who locked her daughter in the closet recently.

      Love the flow of thought here with the bitter realizations. A beautiful somber poem.
