I Can Cry Whenever I Want

I Can Cry Whenever I Want

A Poem by Naomi Bloom

I can cry whenever I want

It is an actor’s dream

I can cry whenever I want

It’s just coursing through my veins

That hurt, ungratefulness

Inner discord 

It’s calling to me

Let it out!

But I hold it in so well

I am a terrible actor

I have an unexpressive face

Or maybe just a lack of courage in expressing emotions

Tears are physical

Aren’t they?

Or are they emotional?

I am a terrible actor

Because I’m so good at catching and keeping

What should be out in the open

I can cry whenever I want
