    My room. It's the only place I can cry.

    It's the only place I can let out what I'm really feeling.. I might seem ok. But I'm not. I can be real in my own little world. Listening to music and trying to drown out the world.. Trying to drown out my feelings. Try try try... Probably my least favorite word. Cause it...

    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.

    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...

    Is it right to cry myself to sleep?

    I do it every night. Hell, I'm crying right now. Why am I so strong in front of other people am never tell them my secrets so I have to deal with them alone, but I break down as soon as I am alone. I can't help it, if anyone was in my position you would cry too. I'm just crying...

    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...

    chair every night, on EP and crying my life out! Literally! Sometimes I think I can't cry any more and then more tears come out. I just can't control any of this! My life is driving me insane! I am insane! I don't know what to do! I don't think I ever have!

    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.

    My Face Says One Thing But My Heart Says Another.

    I guess I have always cried on my own it's a way of hiding the pain. I am a young carer so I have learned to ignore people who make fun of my family but deep down I feel hurt. I seem to be stronger around other people as I don't want to burden them with what I am feeling so it is...

    I just feel like there is

    so much going on at times I cannot deal with it. So I just lay in my bed an cry. I feel like this is my story an one day it will be my song. Is it really possible to be happy an so unhappy at the same time? I am forever on a roller coaster an I ready for a different ride.

    People don't think I notice,

    that I don't feel, that I don't care, that I'm not afraid, that I can't feel pain..... Maybe because it's true. I'm the demon of my nightmares, the shadowy figure. But nobody knows the real me. I cry alone And nobody knows I cry every night Tonight I'm having a girls night...

    I do this everyday, every night,

    while thinking about how I seem to chase nice and good people off. I cry because I am disparaged for my sexual orientation, and would be hated by family and friends that don't already know about it. I hate how I can't change anything in my life, and I am on the verge of losing...
