Fear in an ex-fiance

Fear in a vulnerable man

Fear because I cannot

Tears from a crying baby

Tears from a masculine man

Tears because I can’t

Oh society

You made me show them I am a madman

You made me show them I am a superman

While I am just wrecked like a soldier in Afghanistan

Oh she

The ex-girlfriend

Her recklessness drew the end

Her hastiness made it bend

She came without her makeup

She came without her red dress

She came with only loss and mess


Me in confusion

Me in fear

Me in an emotional state


Standing like a shadow

All that and why?

Because of such fears and tears
