About the Poem

This poem speaks volumes for the hurt of a lost love.

I'm Too Big To Cry

I never stopped to realize
How lonely I would be
I never thought the day would come
When you'd grow tired of me

Your voice was never sweeter
Than the day you said goodbye
You'll never know how much it hurt
Because I'm too big to cry

If I knew then what I know now
You'd still be kissing me
Instead there's someone else's lips
Where mine used to be

I say hello and wish you well
Each time I pass you by
But you'll never know how much it hurt
Because I'm too big to cry

You never looked so wonderful
As the day you walked away
I used to say, "I love you"
But that I could not say

I can't forget you darlin'
No matter how much I try
You'll never know how much it hurt
Because I'm too big to cry

i like this one because it made me think of james, all those things we have been ever since we met, somehow reminded me and just like the last sentence maybe "james didn't know how much it hurts because i'm too big yet too ashamed to cry.

It was amazing!
Tammy
This poem is oh so true, and beautifully written. Funny how we cannot cry in front of the person that hurt us most.
Sam
Wonderful poem . its funny how society has come to recognize tears as a show of weakness. Is there a better way to vent your sorrow than with a flood of tears ? Many a time, we try in vain to swallow our troubles, wishing we were children once more, when we could so easily pour our heart out in tears.
ELISKA
THIS IS THE BOMB EVEN THOUGH I CRY ALL THE TIME I CAN SEE IT FROM A BOY'S POINT OF VIEW ALL THE TIME
