    I shed crocodile tears
    Not even sad when they appear
    Then a daydream of a movie, I acted and directed
    A beautiful scene, beyond what was expected
    They killed my characters wife
    They killed my wife
    I spoke to the butcher expected to let him know
    The dark seeds of violence that he did sow
    But then it turned real soliloquy spoken
    Mind revealing what was hidden from me
    Because it wasn’t the characters family that died
    Instead it was mine, a child unnamed and wife unsaved
    I was at work yet I let them flow
    I thought I hid them good, so no one knew
    Yet I realized the crocodile tears turned true

    Why? Why did I see you?
    It struck me out of the blue
    You! You! It had to be you!
    My heart’s fire died like a small lantern in a flood
    I saw us, how happy we were
    Even though up to this point we never were
    I’m still not ready to say I love you
    Yet suddenly in my head I was screaming I do
    The very thought of being close to you
    Yearning to feel some of your love to
    I want to be the reason for your smile
    Yet I lie to myself that it is tears of a crocodile

    In this Daydream of a Daydream
    That was so real, to real it seems
    I could hold you, console you, make all right
    And the you were dead in my arms
    The warmth became a void
    No just empty but draining inside
    Inside my heart it tried to spread
    So I tried to change it and it was me instead
    So I was six feet under, soul asunder
    I would demand eternity in hell no mater my good
    Because that is what I deserved for leaving you
    Because even now you are better than a dream

    Inability to reach out to you is breaking my hearts strings
    I hold it in until I can truly call out to you
    But I know this may be a delusion too
    But this void is not dying
    And the only warmth seems to be thoughts of you
    I think I love you, but know I shouldn’t
    That all I want and need is you, but I can’t
    For without you, in my arms I feel like nothing
    You are nothing, yet are my everything
    A beautiful void feeding what is in my heart
    I feared these feelings and tried to fight it
    But like these tears at work they slip through
    No sobbing, just longing
    Tears of a crocodile streaming down my face

    The idea they could be anything more terrifies me.
