    I'm going to bed, I know I'll cry myself to

    sleep. Why? Because I'm a traitor, I lied to myself and my friends! I don't deserve my friends their too good for me.

    Some Nights

    Mostly when I haven't heard from my husband that night and I start to worry. It hurts going to bed alone night after night, knowing that the one you love is in constant danger, that his life coud be taken from you and you'd never get the chance to old them again. Makes me so sad...

    An Important Release

    Not all the time, but maybe a few times a month. I wait until I am alone, when I can shut the door of my room. I don't even try to stifle it: I let it all out in big, heaving sobs muffled by my pillow so no one will hear. The tears come flooding out and I think to myself how...

    Before I met him I wouldn't cry. No matter what , I kept the tears in. Then I met him and it was always nice to go to bed , I had no regret and always smiled. I had no more reason to cry because I had him. Then he left. I now cry every night. I curl myself up and think of him...

    and my husband makes no effort to comfort me. He will always say later that he cares but never enough to stay awake. He has caused me so much pain, and then leaves me to cope and grieve on my own. Always later telling me he loves me..but showing it is a different story. I feel...

    There was a few years back when I was on my early teens (12-15), when I would cry myself to sleep often. It was just a miserable time for me. Thankfully, I no longer feel this way. But I still remember the bittersweet memories. The scars are still there, underneath it all. I'm...

    Every Single Night.

    Ever since sixth grade I have cried myself to sleep every night. 2 years in between now and then, I only did it occasionally but when I lost the girl I love it came back. And every tear is because of her. Since sixth grade. I've always cried because of her.

    when I'm really depressed I go to bad, no matter if it's 6PM or 10 PM and just try to fall asleep, but somehow the crying gets worse and worse. I once sprayed deodorant into my eyes, because it makes you stop crying. but it burned like hell. I'm so weird.. but that's me..
