The tears I cry

The tears I cry

The tears I cry by frodobolson72


Seems like just yesterday
You were a part of me
I used to stand so tall
I used to be so strong
Your arms around me tight
Everything, it felt so right
Unbreakable, like nothin' could go wrong
Now I can't breathe
No, I can't sleep
I'm barely hanging on

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

I told you everything
Opened up and let you in
You made me feel alright
For once in my life
Now all that's left of me
Is what I pretend to be
So together, but so broken up inside
'Cause I can't breathe
No, I can't sleep
I'm barely hangin' on

Here I am, once again
I'm torn into pieces
Can't deny it, can't pretend
Just thought you were the one
Broken up, deep inside
But you won't get to see the tears I cry
Behind these hazel eyes

Swallow me then spit me out
For hating you, I blame myself
Seeing you it kills me now
No, I don't cry on the outside

This Kelly Clarkson's song made me think about the possible relationship between teenager Snape and Lily(my favourite theory,hehe ).Even if Snape doesn't have hazel eyes.
But I think the whole song captures quite well what'd be Snape's feelings when Lily left him to be engaged with James.Poor Severus...!

CRaYoNBoYHoly cow! As I was looking at your drawing and reading the first couple lines in your description, I was thinking "hmm these lyrics sound familiar". At that exact moment the radio started playing Clarkson's "behind these hazel eyes". That was pretty trippy. No joke, it seriously happened. Anyway I really like your work here. You added some nice lighting especially with the rays coming in. A great moody piece.

SpiritArcherI do believe this is how he truly felt in the book. ): His whole plot in the story saddened me to no end because he wanted something he simply could not have. I cry thinking of him now. u_u

The scene does give Snape the feel of what he's probably just seen. James proposing to Lily from far away maybe? Or maybe he's come to the realization that he just can't have her. Either way, the break down of him seems so unreal. The scattered flowers really touch me but the light makes me think that there's something new for him. ): A beautiful yet sad piece which dives into what Snape feels. ):
