I Really Want To Cry

I Really Want To Cry


It ebbs and flows inside me

As though summoned by the moon

Walks within my being

Shades the light in every room


Like a lake near overflowing

Lipping, lapping on the shore

Held by trembling meniscus

Fearing only one drop more


I really need to cry


A weeping weight of water

Waiting, washing to and fro

Dammed by fear inside me

To be a torrent once let go
