We all have things that we won't let ourselves do. Some won't let themselves cry, love, hope, fear, hate, or have faith.

This poem is partly about me, as all poems in essence are a part of the poet. Another part of the poem is to encourage others to reach out to people who are in pain, before it's too late. Life's short, why not make it sweet? I can guarantee you that somebody needs you.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems

She Won't Cry
You see the pain that lies in her eyes,
But, alas, her eyes are dry,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the anger that burns from her gaze,
The madness that sets her eyes ablaze,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the fear that closes her eyes,
The smile she wears is but a disguise,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the hope that is finally dead,
She cannot trust for her heart has been bled,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the love that lies within,
But she shall never love again,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see death's hand that has glazed her eyes,
No one saw her die inside,
They won't cry.
No, they won't cry.

    I love to cry. It makes me feel bttr. So you cry. let all the hate and sadness and overwhelmed feelings just slip out through ur tears. Scream, and curse, and throw ur belongings all over the floor, just dont hid ur true feelings behind a locked door. ;p

    This poem right here explains how I feel every day in my life. I feel pain and despair and people see it in my eyes, but I just won't cry. I refuse to let my guard down like that. I hate when people feel pity for me, because it makes me feel I am weak. This poem lets me know that I'll be all right and that I'll make it through this tough tough fight. Now, I know, it's safe to cry.
