What are you looking for?

Want to cry, tears won't flow
Mind has nowhere else to go
Thoughts keep spinning, life's not bad
Why can't I help but feel sad?
Feel like a victim but, of what?
Why can't I shake these pointless thoughts?
Brain is broken, must be why
Dear God, won't you let me cry?
No one knows just how I feel
don't dare to tell them, not sure it's real
Scenarios inside my brain the good, the bad it's all the same
How "I should have" and "what if" play out as if some movie script
Things that can not, shall not, or will not be
I've lived them out where no one sees
Want to stop these futile thoughts
They help no one, me least of all
Finally a small prayer answered, moistened cheeks relieve some pressure
It likely will return too soon for now I'm safe here in my room
