No Tears

No Tears

a Poem by Raquel Swann


I cannot for the life of me

shed one single tear.

Am I broken

Is it fear?


Someone dies close to me

not one single lonely tear.

I have feelings but

it’s not clear.


As the truth unfolds

Friends disappear.

My broken heart wilts

Yet, not one tear?


I begged for you,

but you didn’t hear.

My soul is crushed

Where’s the tear?


I reach out with all I have,

and no one’s near,

Please just let me

have one solitary tear.


All these feelings

are buried near

I’m miserable

but still no tear.


What’s it like to cry?

After a horrible year.

I’ll never know

Without a tear.
