The tears don't

fall on my cheeks no!

they fall inside my stomach

I swallowed them whole

however much my eyes are sore

my stomach suffer the pain

Tears hurt


Don't ask me why

I always have ulcers

its because of the acidity and salinity

the teardrops carry in them

they carry alot of pain and regrets

that tore my heart into pieces

Tears hurt 


I try to let it go

but a huge lump

formed on my gullet prevent

me from saying goodbye

the endurable pain of ulcers

corrode my stomach from inside

Tears hurt


My eyes are sore

my heart broken into pieces

the pain inside aching me

is too much I can't bear

they said a man is not supposed to cry 

but I shed tears

and these tears hurt alot.
