Next Time

Tell your tears it doesn't matter
Tell those streaks on your cheeks
That it is not love
In your life that you seek

Tell your broken heart
Tell your sobbing chest
Even though self justification
Is not giving your best

Tell yourself whatever
It takes to get by
Simply look away
Simply close your eyes

Lose your best friend
Lose your opportunity and choice
To speak honestly and openly
Let the dark winds take your voice

You'll never regret it
You'll never bow your head
Put it off till later
That there is a better way instead

The end never comes
Lock it into your mind
Take the easy way out
Because there is always

Next time

Very interesting Neils. I like this one. You seem to have mastered the art of locking up your pain, deep love and tears. You have a hard exterior but a very kind heart locked up in a steel box. I wonder who will be the one to unlock that? Very emotional poem. Gamsahamnida Sabunim.
