RevolutionAl (Alistair Plint)'s Rendition-...and when a man cries

 
...and when a man cries  
  
in the corner of his  
highs  
 
no one could see  
no one would see  
no one should see  
 
and when a man cries  
behind the veil  
of his highs  
 
he has done all  
he could've done  
he would've done  
he should've done  
 
to avoid  
the void  
 
and  
when a man cries  
under clear blue skies  
it rains  
no  
not a flood  
just a pair of droplets  
on a couple of specks of dirt  
leaving them moist  
yet as barren  
as before  
 
and when a man cries  
with open dry eyes  
his widest of grins  
are his  
whitest of lies  
 
do not ask what happens  
when?  
a man cries  
 
it is only after  
"the man"  
in him  
dies  
.  
 
 
it happens  
without a sigh  
because  
when a man cries  
he does so  
behind the visible highs  
 
 
and when a man cries....
