Unplanned Poetry - I Can't Cry

I can't
cry

not about
that

not
today
not
yesterday.

I can
cry in joy
over
a young woman's
blooming,
giving birth
to her new persona
singing her song with a sass
reserved for a woman
who lives it.

I can
cry in sadness
(for a second)
over the love song
now playing
(in the background)

but I can't cry
over the
horror

if
I
do
I
will
never
stop.
