Crying Strong

Crying Strong

  Crying is something

I don't normally do.

I am the strong one

others turn to.

When they are sad

it's my phone they call.

I am the one that

usually helps when they fall.

No, I keep my tears

held up inside.

My feelings I have

I let them hide.

Be strong, be strong

my mind I say.

But the pain is

by far stronger today.

Today my heart

saw the lie.

Today my eyes

started to cry.

    Darkness has consumed me, Where there once was light. You told me I was beautiful, from our very first night. Now alone in the dark is where I sit, feeling every ounce of pain. I never saw the knife you...

When you always help, who helps you? if you are always up, do you see me down below? I am lost within my heart, nothing left to find. Creature of habit I am, creature of shadows divine.

sad but yes, beautiful

usually no one is there to help me but me. I have friends but cant get ahold of them, i have parents don't want to worry them, i have kids don't want to hurt them, so when i cry it is alone in the dark, or when i am by myself.

I soooo related to this one. Something changed when I had my babies though, harder for me to hold them now. Especially these last to years, I've been reduced to a puddle. Love and light to you 4elements.

Being strong is not a bad thing but releasing a tear of pain doesn't hurt either. I am a huge cry baby tears come to me by the rivers..... this was a gret poem 4.... sometimes we just buckle.

I know what you mean. I hold it in for so long that I break down when Im alone. I am a single parent of 3 and I wont cry in front of my kids. Silly maybe, but i want them to see me as strong, and become strong themselves. Thank you so much for reading and leaving a comment. Blessings bellawritter23

I do cry infront of my children just because they need to know that to have emotion is part of life and it will take you through some rough patches I tend not to show weakness but have them understand that these are facts of life. Not saying that there is nothing wrong with not crying in front of your children they are gonna grow up always knowing you were a st5rong individual and there was no way around you and nothing came at you that you couldn't handle! I am pretty sure you are a wonderful single mother of three, so am I, very hard at times but we tend to make magic happen for them how? I have no clue.....

huge smiles to you and your children

Thank you so much bella, I have only cried in front of them once, and they were so lost and wanted to cry too and wanting to help but they couldn't at least not the situation when it happened . But when i saw the pain in there eyes because Mommy was hurting so to speak, I couldn't do that to them again. Yes it is hard, Magick, yes I will have to agree on that. I do the best i can. and thank you for the hugs much needed and appreciated!

I did a poem a while ago called Stupid Tears and was surprised by the comments. Most people believe that bottling them is BAD. There is some science behind it, but my urge is still to choke em down.

I would have to agree. I know when you cry it doesn't mean your weak, but for some reason I won't let myself do it in front of people. Probably a bad thing because sometimes its nice to cry if someone just held you until you were done no words need to be spoken, just holding.

It's something I learned when I was three. My stepmother was abusive and I decided if she couldn't make me cry, then I won. Later that idea transferred to life. If it couldn't make me cry, I won. I've been losing lately :P

So have I, but we are still in the game so I think we are winning.

There is nothing like a good cry. I am such a baby. Hallmark commercials make me cry. I cry at the drop of a hat. Luckily I have a loving husband to comfort me.

This usually happens to good peaople.

Their shoulder is always available, then when you need them for the smallest reasons sometimes, its disappointing when they're not there..

Love the poem, heart-felt

You are a character that I admire
