The Crying Girl

SHANNON CHRISTIE

The crying girl –

Does she cry for you?

Does she cry for me?

It’s a game she plays –

Is it for you?

Is it for me?

This crying game

It’s not what it seems

What does she cry for

If not for you

If not for me

She cries for all the things

She thought she could be

Perhaps that’s the game –

She cries for all the things

You thought you could be

And all the things

I thought I could be

She cries for all of us

All the things

We thought we could be

Yet were never meant to be

For the crying girl

Is you.

And the crying girl

Is me.
