Healing waters pouring forth
Why won't they come?
Symbols of released sorrow and grief
Why won't they come?
Effects of pride and joy
Why won't they come?

Signals for others to sympathize
Why can't I start?
Easing the pain of tragedy
Why can't I start?
Works of powerful emotions
Why can't I start?

Pouring from cracks in the armor
Should I never start?
Signs of weakness and injury
Should I never start?
Blood of torn feelings
Should I never start?

Necessities of emotional life
I don't have a choice
Bane of the mind's strength and stability
I don't have a choice
Unable to even choose whether or not
I don't have choice

They don't come when I call
And I push back when they threaten.
I don't (and can't) cry. Haven't in like over a year anyways. While that means I'm an emotional tank and an awesome (I'm not) it also means I don't have those cries where people let all that crap out of themselves.

Even more amazing :]
You really have a good way of saying things, and the way you write them are very bittersweet (emotion wise). Its funny how sorrow can be so beautiful, but poetry can make that possible, and this and your other works of art are fine examples of that. The words you use, I would have never thought of. Your work is very well easily titled as genius, though everyone may have a different perspective, all your poetry I can tell comes from the heart.

I've never seen a piece of poetry like this! You showed your feelings wonderfully :heart: If you get this the wrong way, all you need to know is that you can show your feelings other than tears: words. Some great writers have trouble expressing this :P

This is a very powerful and emotive poem. I enjoyed it a lot despite its sort of sad subject. The repetition in each stanza was good, gave each one a purpose. And your vocabulary is excellent! Well done!

I've experienced this myself. Bout two months after my "accident" even when dealing with great pain I couldn't shed a tear for about 2 years. Alas my accident was 7 years ago.

Again, I know the feel. And theres nothing wrong with that. Youre not a crybaby for expressing yourself in a beautiful way.

I can relate.
I can't cry when I need to let things out anymore.
All I can ever do is write these days.
Very nice work, btw. c:

Thanks :P And yea, writing is they only way I let out all my emotional baggage. Makes me seem kinda like a crybaby though... All my poems are dark and sad and philisophically depressing.
