Counting the Tears

Standard
One for endings
One for the faces you will never see again
One for the faces who now ignore you in the street
One for the ones who glance in recognition but do nothing else
Because you both know anything further would only make it worse
 
One for the rough days
One for the things you can never have
One for the things you have lost
One for the things that made you happy
And are now the source of your heartache
 
One for the things that went wrong
One for the youth you wasted
One for the roads you never went down
One for the realisation
That no matter what you do you’ll always regret something
 
Then they become innumerable
Heavy on your chest
Choking your soul
 
Try to see
Through the blinding veil
Try to see 
And if you’re very lucky
And look hard enough
When all is said and done
You might just have
Some for the laughter
