this was a really great poem. i think u described how many people feel, because i know this is how i feel right now
Your poem is great, it's how I'm feeling right now. I hope these feelings go away.
This poem is sooo true. It reminds me of me. and how to pretend.
Wow. This poem is absolutely beautiful. I think I know exactly what you're going through. you put on a smile even though deep inside you're so hurt, and so broken. And no one really knows. This poem really touched me, I got teary eyed!Someone else feels this way. I feel so relieved. Thank you for your poetry. I hope to read more.
very good great meanings.
It's wonderful how it's so explanatory in so few words. Brilliance.
I absolutely loved this poem somebody out there acts as I do, like if everything is fine but it's really not i feel the same way with my tortured soul and disturbing thoughts in my head.
i really like your poems

this poem was so perfect and appropriate. i chose it and started crying because it applied to everything in my life currently, and all the emotions i was feeling and which ones i was showing.
Damn this is a good poem. My best friend killed herself 2 years ago (April 27, 2001) and this poem gives me an idea of what she was going through. Having lost a friend to suicide is the worse because you start thinking what you did or what you could of done. everyone is loved in this world, no need for deppression!
i thought your poem was great so blunt and there it shows that im not the only one who puts on a brave face everyday!
Wow! This a touching poem that I can absolutly relate to; although the words may sound simple, the message is big.
good job
You really understand. I had no idea anyone else felt that way.
i really feel this way at times in fact many many times and am really glad to see it written in words. i feel unburdened.
I have the same feeling. I smile and am happy, but on the inside im dying. i dont think i know of any sadder feeling, this depression
Ms K
This poem really touched me i really can relate to it.
your poem is awesome. i know how you feel, and what you feel. you expressed it perfectly, and it reassures me to the endth degree to know im not alone. thank you.
i think that this poem whus really cool. it really is touching. i have an interest in poetry also and its nice to hear poems similar to mine
I'm impressed. I feel personally obligated to find talent to justify who i am and where i stand in the world. This poem is simple yet completely complex. The emotions are truely rare and i think in very few words you've thoroughly grasped your concept. Continue to write, yet share love with the world.
how he reaches into the soul of someone who is working so hard ( and succeding at) hidding their true feelings from the world. some times it is nice not to feel so alone at times.
this is the best poem i have ever heard in my life. it is my favorite. god bless you.
Hi! this is very good poem and it sounds to me that its not the poe,. infact its my heart talking to me. Keep it up and keep writing these type of poems.
This poem is so sad, cuz it;s about a girl wanting to take her life away and she's remembersing everything in her life.
you poem is great it is so true!
I have a great life but im always depressed. Nothing helps. I've always been this way. I pretend to be happy and laugh when i'm around friends and family. But when i'm alone i just cry for no reason and this poem is my life. i laugh and wave at friends that wave back with no idea how much pain and anger is built up inside me. Thanx for writing this poem. I don't feel like i'm such an outcast anymore.
I really loved your poem. At the moment I am going through depression. I just recently lost my boyfriend in a car accident. I have been very upset lately and have even stopped eating here and there. I am going to have my best friend come to this site and read your poem. I want to say thank you for showing me a way to have my friends and family help me. If you do not mind I would like to think of you as a guardian angel who is here to look out for others. Thank you so much!
This poem was right on with me. It is not to often that I read something that on the dot with myself. I feel that more people should read this.
This poem is superb! Very simple, yet deep. I guess you'd heard this many times. but I too can relate to this poem. Thank you for writing it, and helping me remind myself that I'm not alone.
I can totally relate to your poem because I am the same way.
this explains in few words many feelings r shown but never the real ones;exactly how i feel
I have been depressed most of my life. It's always been on and off, every couple of months are good, the next few bad and so on. This poem really just goes along with how I've always felt. You just start to hide it to save others from what you feel. They don't need that pain in their life so you smile and brush it off while they are around. The next free moment you go curl up with your favorite sad song and cry inside on your bed. Sometimes hiding it helps, and sometimes not. Thanks for the poem and keep writing.
its really very good poem , i love it so much , its short and smiple words but strong and touching .
I understand this poem it is just like me no-one can see the internal tears.
well well, i really love this poem , it just explain how i feel most of the time. some times a lot of poeple laugh outloud while their heart's crying and this is totally true .. keep on going u have the very good senses of writting.
i can relate
I like this its easy to understand in different ways.
exactly what i feel, when my best friend tells me she started seeing someone..
I have been so miserable every since my sophmore year. I have this great boyfriend that I love very much but he doesn't understand why I'm always hurting and depressed. He thinks its him but it's not. it's just me. I sent this to him to help him understand. Thanks!
This is every day for me, I didnt realise that other people felt like this. You pretend there's nothing wrong but your breaking up inside, It helps to know that I'm not the only one who feels like this. Thank you.
I really can relate to this poem NJ. After my boyfriend slash brother died I was devistated because I found out i was pregnant with his chld and now i have to look at his ugly face everyday! Im so depressed i think i need to write some poetry.
I hope you get the help you need but I think that you need to keep writing poems b/c I think that it helps you cope w/ your depression good luck hun!
wow, this was a terrific poem. i liked the way it looked and didnt rhyme--very original. i can totally relate, especially by hiding it from friends.
i LOVED the poem, it was realy expressive with only a few words, and made parts of my life come i totally related. it's an awesome poem.
We used this poem for a poetry essay. It was easy to understand.
I love that poem. I don't know... something about it. It suites me well. :)
It's sad how many of us actually feel this way.. u've brought it out well on paper, but I hope u're coping well too. Good luck and keep writing.
I really like this poem since it can express how a person feels inside and what is hidden.
i really like this poem... its simple but still expresses really deep emotion!! its awesome work..
This poem really does go on with people, and I liked what it had to say.
That poem was really good! A lot of depression poems don't even describe what's going on to a full extent,but this one described what I was going thru very well.I give it 2 thumbs up!
this poem expresses how i feel to the greatest extent something that i just can't seem to explain to my friends and family
I really like this poem, because I have felt that way. I know what it is to be laughing for everyone and crying deep insie you
I understand!
I like this poem and I can relate very much to the writer.
This poem was very realistic about how you see your friends but you never really know them. You never know what's really going inside of them.
this is just so tru! no one knows what's goin on inside of us, we laugh to hide our pain, yet inside we never stop crying
it's just great!
an amazing expression of true feelings.
i love this poem! Itīs really great! i was looking for such a thing, but i didnīt really believe, i would find it, i thought thereīs nobody, nobody who could ever feel this way. the way i feel. you laugh, and laugh without stopping, and smile when people pass bym but deep inside you, youīre crying, and noone can hear you.
i love this poem! i was looking for something like this, but i thought i wouldnīt find it, i thought noone else feels this way, i thought i was the only one, the only one who cries inside without stopping, and laughs and smiles when people are passing by. thanks, for the beautiful words in your poem!
I really like this poem it actually tells alot about how not just sad things can bring tears to your eyes
Helped me to know I am not alone and someone else has been there also.
