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.

    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.

    My mum died a week ago and this poem tells the story of her life. Over the last few years she battled with my sister having cancer (and thankfully recovering) and my dad been left an invalid following a stroke. Over the last few weeks of her life I felt that she lost her fight - this poem says it all. many thanks I found it strangely comforting to read this poem.
  • lone ranger
    to see one so empty, hurts. yet it makes no sense to live in the world with a dead soul. thank you for letting out those feelings.
  • Jessica
    This poem really spoke to me. I guess it reminds me of. me. I don't really know why; I can't point out what about it applies to me, but it just speaks to me. I really love it, I do! Keep up the good work!

  • Emma
    i loved your poem. its everything i am but couldnt put down in writing.
  • Holly
    Wow! This is so how I feel right now! I have had past bad experiences, especially with relationships, and I was about to give up completely on dating when I found out that this guy I work with liked me and we started dating. Then suddenly he just drew away from me, he didn't tell me with words, but I read it through his body laungage and the way he avoided me. So when I confronted him (I basically had to corner him) he told me that he just likes the single life too much, that he is extremely independent, plus he doesn't have time for a single life since he feels that it is his job to take care of his mother and 21yr old brother. He told me that he doesn't want to ruin a good friendship by getting into a relationship with me, but that if I wanted to be friends with benefits with him that would be cool. The sad thing is, I know that all that load of crap he told me was a lie, because he doesn't remember that I was there when he told his buddies that he was looking for a girl who will commit to him, and a long term relationship. Anyways, So I ended up feeling used because of the way it all played out, and worthless because he didn't value me enough to tell me that he didn't think it was going to work out rather just string me along. So, this poem that you wrote I love and is how I totally feel because all of my friends don't know that what happened even phased me, except for one. She said she could see my different moods through my eyes.

  • Lacey
    I love to hear poems that really express reality today.
  • Hannah
    I liked the vague description. It is excellent for this style and gives the poem strength. It sounded almost like something I had written. Funny, isn't it, how a poet's mind works?
  • Patrice
    This is a good poem! I enjoyed reading it and it makes me jealous. You said all the words that i wanted to say but just couldn't put them in the right words. Thank you!

    Touching poet which expresses the feelings many feel, yet go unnoticed by others

    This poem was so simple but it said so much in its simplicity. The last verse was what got to me the most. I sometimes wonder if anyone REALLY sees me and if anyone would notice if i were to fade or even care for that matter. Thank you for this poem.

  • Claire
    This was such a touching poem and I can totally relate to it. It's one of the most- undescribable poems I've read and that's a good thing. I love it, I love it. It's beautifully written because I just feel the same way and I can bet you a lot of other people do too. They wont cry when something has happened- always trying to keep it in of fear or anything and hide it with a smile. This poem is great. Awesome job.
  • Tori
    Oh em gee. I love this poem. I heard about it from a grl in my class, and HAD to search it up. I've pretty much felt like this for about two months.

  • mindy
    excellent poem, when things are tough it is nice to read a wonderful poem that helps express the pain
  • necrobuddha
    i think this is great work. it really cuts to the essence of our society. no one shows their feelings, and it hurts them and the people around them by doing so.
  • lois
    its fab a real good pice of work
  • Kristen
    The poem was awesome. I just wish that it had been longer because it really touched me. It was definitely deep. The poem reminded me of myself and how i feel sometimes. Keep up the beautiful writing and I'll be sure to keep looking for more of your work.

    This was a very touching poem. I know how this feels. My teenage years haven't been the best and I am still going through the worst. Poems like this touch not only the heart but the soul. Jenni
  • Bree
    I love this poem, I can relate to it because of the things have been through thats makes me not want to trust no one with my feelings.
  • Remesha
    As I read this poem, I thought of the pain that this person must be enduring and felt encouraged and moved by the powerful words of this poem. It is insprirational and it gives a chance to put myself in the shoes of others. This is a splendid choice of words.
  • Lauren
    I love this poem it is really good!

  • Liz
    Hey, this was a great poem. I write poems myself, and this one really remings me of myself in so many ways. Theres some one that trys to make me cry. He hurts me physically, mentally, and emotionally, but hes related. So no mushy stuff. But he trys to make me cry. And hes the only one that can make me cry. But thats when he hits me. Otherwise I don't cry. And your poem kinda explains it. Great job. I hope you create more poems like this one.

    I really loved this poem because I think it describes me. I have been hurt many times but if I cry, I won't stop. No one knows how I feel inside because if I tell them,I'm afraid I'll cry. It's like the she is me,and them is my friends.

    How well it describes so many of us. Written simply, yet manages to get across the defiance in us, yet the helplessness we feel, whilst appearing to all as strong as ever. Thank you.
  • misty
    i really liked the poem.
  • Annie
  • Lynn
    In so few words, this poem has captured that feeling of all hope being lost, of knowing that you are slowly dying inside and yet no one knows, therefore you must die alone.
  • debra
    i think this is a very sweet poem and i hope they have more like it on here
  • Janelle
    I am a poet too and this poem has so much depth and emotion in it. I love this poem not only for that reason but right now your poem clearly defines me perfectly. Excellent Poem.

    This MOVED every inch of molecule in my body, and tore right through my heart to a place that had died a long time ago.
  • Ashley
    "She Won't Cry" is a wonderful poem. I don't usually like sad poems, but this one just really caught my eye. It also seems like a song. I really do think that this is an awesome poem, and I would love to share it with my friends.
  • faye

  • Briana
    I think that alot of people can relate to what the poet is saying. Rarely is our pain and emotions left out for people to see. Instead it eats us up inside. The author has done a beautiful job of putting it into words. Keep up the good work!
  • Amanda
    I love to write poems myself and read them as well.when i read this one it made me think of this one person who i know better than anyone else knows her and it decribes things she feels and way she acts and it just touched me so close i decided to vote for this poem!
  • Alexis

    I really liked it, It really describes how I feel.
  • Elaine
    Sad..but nice one.. Loved it :)
  • Vera
    It takes great courage for a woman to tell the world that she will not cry. This poem also sees beyond the synthetic smile, we woman must wear at times. As my son decays and dies, I won't cry.
  • Gidget
    This poem makes me feel like the author knows me. It touched my heart, but I didn't cry.
  • Nicole
    I loved this poem, it was so true too. That in a way is like me, and so many other people i know. I loved it.

  • sandra
    A wonderful poem. I was lifted by your obvious understanding of how it feels to be in such pain.
  • Coalie
    The eerie mystory that comes from the words hit just the right spot. The strength of this person and the stuborness to avoid what is expected gets the point acrossed.
  • monica

    "She Won't Cry"... This poem truly hit home with my emotions. It did a number on me. The very essence of the poem is so completely honest and valid. See, I too have difficulty trusting because my "heart has been bled." But I do believe in hope and new beginnings, so I'm holding out for that special someone to sweep me off my feet. Thank you, Jppoet.

    I loved it! I made me think of my own personal feelings and how now that my heart has been broken i tell myself i can't cry. I won't cry anymore. And if i do cry it is all alone, and the feeling kills me inside. Thanks
