To cry over spilled milk is to remain upset about a past loss. When milk has been spilled, it is wasted and cannot be used. There is no reason to keep complaining over the loss. Note that either of the words spilled or spilt can be used.
-I can't believe we're over! You're not even going to fight for me?
-stop crying over spilled milk, we're done...you really bruised my ego.
-oh, cry me a river!
