Dry Tears

dry tears cover my face, it chokes me, it drowns me

I become mute, have I become hollow?

the smell of my soul is putrid and I feel..

…I feel, drained

everything has escaped me; I’m dry as the desert

empty as a shell

cold as ice

I did not choose this, I feel like giving up

suddenly I feel so tired

stained, dried up, hopeless

…………….

I’ve been wrung, squeezed so tightly

that nothing seems left in me

dry tears swallow me, whole

shut the door for I am covered in awful gunk

I am sinking deeper into this quicksand

I have nothing, nothing, nothing left in me

I am hollow,

empty and

all dried up inside
