    But Not Very Well.

    I don't like people to see me upset. I want people to think I am strong. Sometimes, though, I am not strong, and I cry, and then whoever happens to be around gets drowned in my flood of salty water.

    I Don't Want You To See.

    I cry when I'm on my own in my room because if I started crying in front of someone they would want to know what's wrong with me and I wouldn't know what to say. Sometimes I just want to cry though most of the time I can't.

    I Always Have

    I never could stand for anyone to see me crying, not even my husband or children. I know there is a reason, I just don;t understand what it is. It's like there is a block in place that prevents me from figuring out why I feel so exposed if someone sees me crying, I don't know...

    I Fake A Smile And Run Away From People I Love

    I don't want anyone to see me crying. I usually hide my tears, even with my family or my best friend. I don't want them to feel pity for me. I can laugh like crazy in public, but when I'm alone, I cry like a baby. Even though I know that it's ok to cry sometimes, but I don't want...

    Through Laughter, I Cry

    Yeah, I hide my tears and I always have ever since I was a little girl. I remember vaguely when it started. I think I was in the third or fourth grade and I came home crying about what some other student said to me. This probably was my thousandth time coming home from school...

    Eyes Are Windows To The Soul

    It doesn't matter color eyes you have, each one tells a story. Even the most beautiful eyes have possibly shed the most tears. Tears that you will never see or maybe you don't wish to see. Tears that are shed in anger, depression, happiness, shock, love or anything in general. It...

    I Repress Everything.....

    Right now, I couldn't feel less cared about. If I didn't have EP and the kids in the daycare, I dread to think where I would be. I have always been there for others, supported them and given them my love. Unfortunately I have rarely had the same level of treatment back which...

    No Longer

    I used to be afraid to let you see me cry. I didn't want to show that I was weak or in pain because you told me that I had to be the strong one. All my life I've had to be the strong one, and I just wanted to be the one that had to be taken care of for once in my life. When I...

    Yes, it's true I hide my tears

    but only because I must never show anyone that I am weak, in strong on the inside but I must never let anyone see me for who I really am, I cry alone because I feel alone. At school I just have the need to let it all out, but sometimes it's hard to keep in.

    I Just Do

    I have gotten to the point of letting people know I am sad, that is a huge improvement from holding everything in and kind of losing it while sitting alone in silence after it all builds up too much. Maybe one day I won't have to hide anymore.

    I was once sad and lonely, Having nobody to comfort me, So I wore a mask that always smiled; To hide my feelings behind a lie. Before long, I had many friends; With my mask, I was one of them. But deep inside, I still felt empty, Like I was missing a part of me. Nobody could...

    Run Away And Hide

    whenever I get really sad, I run away and hide. I am afraid to show my tears to others... even loved ones... for my wings are broken... I wonder why I always like to hide, running away? I really don't know... I guess I like to block it all out...
