These Tears

these tears that fill my eyes
just keep coming
i just can’t stop them
i"ve tried to
i don’t know how
you get through to me
and how you keep me down
you miraculously do it though
even though i protect myself from it
the thoughts just come back up
and they drag me back down
into this dark abyss
i sink into a depression
that could last for weeks
and i hurt people around me
but i can’t control myself
when i am depressed
my emotions get the best of me
they just take over
to try to protect me
so it doesn’t happen again
i keep others out
and hold it all inside
and it makes it worse
i don’t know how you do it
but you do it everytime we talk
so i geuss these tears
will just keep flowing
out of my tired eyes
until i cry myself
into a long
dark sleep
