I Cried A River Over You

by irinadim



I cried a river over you
For years and years and years
Until all the tears had dried up

The river bed is parched ground now
Dying a slow death
Yet yearning for life
Yearning for tears
But my tears won’t come

You come
In my dreams you come
As lovely as a spring flower
Coloured with colours of hope
Inside though, a stubborn, cold heart
Within a wall of leaden silence

But my tears don’t come
The river bed is parched ground now.
