About the Poem

We all have things that we won't let ourselves do. Some won't let themselves cry, love, hope, fear, hate, or have faith.

This poem is partly about me, as all poems in essence are a part of the poet. Another part of the poem is to encourage others to reach out to people who are in pain, before it's too late. Life's short, why not make it sweet? I can guarantee you that somebody needs you.

She Won't Cry

You see the pain that lies in her eyes,
But, alas, her eyes are dry,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the anger that burns from her gaze,
The madness that sets her eyes ablaze,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the fear that closes her eyes,
The smile she wears is but a disguise,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the hope that is finally dead,
She cannot trust for her heart has been bled,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see the love that lies within,
But she shall never love again,
She won't cry.
No, she won't cry.

You see death's hand that has glazed her eyes,
No one saw her die inside,
They won't cry.
No, they won't cry.

your work is amazing i understand it so much beacause of my life i have had has made me change the person i was all together 10/10

It inspired me, and I very well enjoyed it
I think this is really good, when i read it, its like the person who wrote it knew how its feels so be so sad but yet stay strong and wont cry cause you know that noone is there for you, just like i feel
I love to cry. It makes me feel bttr. So you cry. let all the hate and sadness and overwhelmed feelings just slip out through ur tears. Scream, and curse, and throw ur belongings all over the floor, just dont hid ur true feelings behind a locked door. ;p

I voted this because its just like me in every way and plus its a good poem
This poem right here explains how I feel every day in my life. I feel pain and despair and people see it in my eyes, but I just won't cry. I refuse to let my guard down like that. I hate when people feel pity for me, because it makes me feel I am weak. This poem lets me know that I'll be all right and that I'll make it through this tough tough fight. Now, I know, it's safe to cry.
this is a very good pome this poem is speaking the truth. keep writing more peomslike this this was very good

My best friend is right next to me, Going through the same thing.
The person you wrote about in this poem, is so much like me. the only difference is I WILL cry. I do cry. I am crying. but they won't cry, they don't know

This poem really touched me. Because my father was never there for me when I was a little girl and now he still isn`t here for me.
i love it it made me cry

My mum died a week ago and this poem tells the story of her life. Over the last few years she battled with my sister having cancer (and thankfully recovering) and my dad been left an invalid following a stroke. Over the last few weeks of her life I felt that she lost her fight - this poem says it all. many thanks I found it strangely comforting to read this poem.

to see one so empty, hurts. yet it makes no sense to live in the world with a dead soul. thank you for letting out those feelings.
This poem really spoke to me. I guess it reminds me of. me. I don't really know why; I can't point out what about it applies to me, but it just speaks to me. I really love it, I do! Keep up the good work!
We see, and we will cry.
omg that wus so cute -Angel
this poem is me i can relate so well with the feeling of being dead inside and nobody knowing thank you
I love this page period.

I liked this poem very much. I read it over and over again. at times it seems that I am like this girl. and that was what really reached out to me from it. Please continue writing poetry for your words can reach any soul, even if it is too pained to admit it.
i loved your poem. its everything i am but couldnt put down in writing.
Wow! This is so how I feel right now! I have had past bad experiences, especially with relationships, and I was about to give up completely on dating when I found out that this guy I work with liked me and we started dating. Then suddenly he just drew away from me, he didn't tell me with words, but I read it through his body laungage and the way he avoided me. So when I confronted him (I basically had to corner him) he told me that he just likes the single life too much, that he is extremely independent, plus he doesn't have time for a single life since he feels that it is his job to take care of his mother and 21yr old brother. He told me that he doesn't want to ruin a good friendship by getting into a relationship with me, but that if I wanted to be friends with benefits with him that would be cool. The sad thing is, I know that all that load of crap he told me was a lie, because he doesn't remember that I was there when he told his buddies that he was looking for a girl who will commit to him, and a long term relationship. Anyways, So I ended up feeling used because of the way it all played out, and worthless because he didn't value me enough to tell me that he didn't think it was going to work out rather just string me along. So, this poem that you wrote I love and is how I totally feel because all of my friends don't know that what happened even phased me, except for one. She said she could see my different moods through my eyes.
