    Any Time Now

    It is a strange thing, my life I guess asking 'why' has become a cliche I'm not ashamed to admit that i cried though i'm a guy makes you wonder what could possibly make a grown man cry? Any time now, I could be leaving the only regret I will have is being reckless & inconsiderate...

    Of Course

    I don't want anyone to see me cry, I don't want anyone to have to suffer with me, or care about what's wrong with me. That's too much to ask of anyone. I sit in my bed so my pride remain intact and uninjured. I cry until I sleep, no matter what time of day. It's better that way...

    My father raised me to believe

    that crying is a form of weakness. I've been feeling very alone for about a week now. Everywhere I go, I'm seeing happy ******* couples. It's driving me insane. At night I've been downright sobbing into my pillow. It hurts. I hate it. I feel weak and useless.

    Sometimes I go in my room,

    close my door behind me, and just lay in my bed and cry. Nobody has to know. I call it silent tears. It's just between my pillow and I. There comes a point in time when you can no longer keep it inside.

    I dislike displaying my tears to others.

    I've also figured out a way to cry silently,

    so no one can hear me and ask me what's wrong. I would talk to them about what's bothering me, but I hold too many secrets from them, so I can't fully express what's on my mind.
