Dealer’s Hand

She can’t cry

or won’t

she’s bottled up inside

rotting from the core out

festering emotions

kept from exploding

waiting to implode

held in for too long

built up like a ticking bomb

not sure how she’s going on

but she goes on

another tear squelched

another year’s cards dealt

dealer’s hand cruel

no chance to win the duel

but she still plays the game

anyway

why

because

it’s all she knows how to do

now if she only knew

how to cry

before it kills her

vacant

alone

denied
