    I Cry Because I Love

    Sometimes I'll cry when I think about someone I've lost, friends, grandparents, family members, co-workers and even aquaintances.   I find no fault in that.  I miss them and I loved them.  They are gone but there are times when their absence really hits...

    Me Too

     When I was little, I used to think I'll never cry when I grow up because I'll be able to live my own life and will be so much happier. I was so wrong!  I cry a lot nowadays, a lot more than I ever did as a child. The only difference is now there is no one to see me...

    Tears Speak To You

    There is sacredness in tears. They are not the marks of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tounges. They are messangers of overwhelming grief.......and unspeakable love.

    I Cry Alot

    There are so many reasons for me to cry, but it's best not to do it in front of other people. Besides, I only think about sad stuff when I am alone. That is the only time that my mind is free to think about whatever and express it however I want to. And other people distract...

    The Beauty of the World Has Made Me Sad, the Beauty That Must Pass"

    We can all do without the macho-man stereotype and the new man nonsense. I  am a man! A  human being with emotion! Deal with it ladies, you do not have a monopoly in this department. ;-)

    Why do I cry? I cry because all of my dreams are

    I sit here trying to be strong but it is not easy. Most the time I hide my hurt deep down but on nights like tonight it's almost impossible. I try to live for the moment but most the time I live for the future, it's easy to be happy looking at the future but looking at the moment...

    I Feel Ashamed

     I seem to cry alot, not infront of anoyone. I am ashamed and scared people near me will find out. I brave the day and cry all night. I forget my problems sometimes, until im alone and then they come flooding back. And yet in a lightly ironic way i cannot let anyone in, i...

    I cry almost everyday now.

    I think it helps, and it does for a bit, but a few hours later, I want to cry again.

    I'm an introvert. It's difficult

    for me to confide and trust people. So when I feel sad, I cry by myself. I don't like crying infront of a lot of people because I don't like the feeling of being looked at as weak.

    So lately I have been very.

    .. Empty. Yeah I guess I can say that, it's been getting worse. I started crying today, just suddenly, I felt so incredibly lost. I can't be in my room anymore, the walls reminds me of all I have lost, all the tears I have cried. It feels isolated and narrow. I can barely be in...

    Misty eyes in the mirror, don't reflect the pain, it's only when you consider, there's only you to blame. Words that's softly spoken, can help to mend your heart, then trust becomes unbroken, although you drift apart. Scenes of happiness will delight, when you close your...

    I Can't Cry In Front of Others

    Not even when my heart is broken and my soul is battered. So I hold my tears until I am alone. I haven't cried for awhile, but I think it is cleansing and really does help you feel better.

    I cry in different ways.

    Of course, crying is preceded by stories. The tears all feel different and I don't know, I've not kept a teardrop data, no way of remembering which tear belonged to which story. Sometimes it is just a welling up, the tears are just caught from overflow, but you can feel the...

    I cry over lots of things. It really isn't difficult to make me cry. I'm just emotional like that. I can't really help it.Over the years, however, it has become increasingly obvious to me that most people don't deal well with crying. Because of this I try to be less emotional...

    I had to take my dog to the vet

    for of course shots, but when she leaves my side I can't help but to feel alone. I feel like she thinks I'm giving her up and that she's going to be alone. She's always by my side I can't think of a better dog or friend than her.

    I've always felt unloved by my family,

    it's always what I'm doing wrong and never anything I do right. They never ask me if I want to go out with them, even my father doesn't want to talk to me. I never noticed how lonely I felt when I'm at home alone, I sometimes cry when I just watch T.V., or I really cry when I...

    Tears

    In any circumstance[whether I am around people or really alone], I always have this sense of loneliness. I sometimes cry when I am alone. Why? I have no idea. Sometimes it is from music that speaks to me, things I have done to myself and people, but most times, my tears arrive...

    When The Mask Slips And I Am Alone.....

    I cry at times. Not always and not often but I do cry. It's only when I am alone. Whether that is the bathroom or in bed at night in the early hours of the morning. Sometimes the shame, confusion, upset and pain just get too much. I haven't cried in front of anyone for years...

    It is hard to live alone.

    Although affection was sporadic in my marriage, I still miss the occasional snuggle, hand holding, and just having someone there. It is hard to be alone all the time.
