Dry Tears



Someone once told me,
When your heart is crying,
There will be no tears in your eyes.
That there is only pain, aching inside....

Perhaps my heart is crying,
Since I wanted to cry, and cried I did,
So vivid I cried for the memories,
But no tears are coming from my eyes,

Is it so that my soul is aching?
I wanted to scream, and screamed I did,
But no sound coming from my mouth.......
Although, as if my soul wanted to shout!!

Was it a bad dream? A solid nightmare?
Was it an act of a heart, broken in despair?
Wish I knew, as my heart and soul...
Both are crying aloud, within.

How can that be happening,
How can love turned to elusive thing?
How can a heart and a soul cries?
In my dream, I was chasing a butterfly,
In my dream, he came and kissed my eyes...
Then when I am awaken, there is no one, hereby.

When your heart is crying,
There will be no tears in your eyes.
And there is only pain, aching inside.........
