Why I did not cry?

Updated on February 19, 2014

Why I did not cry

The day we said goodbye?

I already had the image of you and me

Hugging each other so tightly

An image of hardship in letting go

A couple in a beautiful sorrow

With my arms surrounding your neck

The world and time was a wreck

Why I did not cry? Oh please, can you tell me why?

I really want to cry and I do really try

Teardrops will make goodbyes so sad

Like how the saddest movies end up so bad

Instead, you kissed my lips and neck with a smile

You said "take care" instead of "goodbye"

You hugged me close but not so tight

We did not even look into each others eyes

I Can't even speak, I choked as I reply

and murmured goodbye without looking into your eyes

I can hardly breath, I was thinking so deeply

That moment I did not cry is slowly killing me

I act like that, of course I knew why

Pretending not to care and not loving you is a lie

I'm scared of rejection, this feeling I denied

That is why on that day, I did not cry
