Hidden Tears

I cry alone
in the seat next to you
listening to songs that make me ache
that sing to you my love
in ways I can’t


I cry alone
messages sent from you
make me happy enough to burst
but these tears are kept
quiet and hidden


I cry alone
in pain and joy
my tears cannot be used against me
no chance of scorn
and never fear


I cry alone
behind glasses and screens
because I don’t want to burden you
with the depth and candor
my soul contains


I cry alone
but what I want
is you to put your hand in mine
so that I have no need
to cry at all
