I Still Cry
I've a safety button for when my eyes to start water
when tears begin to reveal their hidden depths
there's a wall that shuts it off pretty damn quick
so there is no flood
The stone wall seeps and leaks and so I must
keep plugging holes with all my fingers
and when the wetness falls upon my cheeks
All my thoughts will flee
I can see blue skies above with white clouds floating
laughing children in all the cars that pass me by
though the guardian works hard to keep things dry
I cry. I still cry.
Regret? I Don't Need no Stinking Regret.
Baby, I'm so sorry
I forgot how beautiful you were.
There's no more regret. I've eaten it all.
Still it tugs at my belly
like a belligerent beggar
with no teeth
smacking his gums
