Tears that well up, push together, and throw themselves over the rim of your eye can be the result of so many different emotions and situations. Sometimes crying is a healthy release for stress, disappointment, and even anger. Other times, tears fall from sheer frustration or feelings of worthlessness or shame. Such tears fall when a person has been strong for too long and their heart can no longer bear the pain. Crying is a necessary way to cleanse your soul of its suffering. Sometimes, it is the first step to rediscovering happiness.

    Thousands of tears
    Rush down my face.
    Inside my mouth
    Blood is all I taste.

    Blow by blow I take
    the hits in
    through all of it
    Not a sound I make.

    I bite back
    Every ounce of ..........

    Walking through the rain,
    I try to forget the pain.
    I try to ignore the sting in my eyes,
    because I know, a strong girl never cries.
    I begin to run, run from my fears.
    But I am followed by my ..........

    This page is blank, in your mind
    These words aren't here,
    These words are lies.
    your home is nothing of a home
    Family members with characteristics of
    Strangers

    You know nothing of these ..........

    Sometimes I wish I was a cloud and I could live in the sky. And then my life wouldn't be just a big lie. When people think/say I'm beautiful I ask them why. Sometimes I can't bare my own ugliness and ..........

    I know I am different because I found myself
    you dislike me because I am not like every one else.
    I cry so hard because that's who I am

    I sit here alone
    in this place
    called hell
    no one can make
    me happy or fix
    me but you and
    the love you have for me
    but you never show up for days on end
    I take a knife and carve your
    name ..........

    I like playing with guns and knifes
    I like to think about taking my life
    want to jump from the 13th floor of my building
    the cut inside my heart is never healing

    I just wish I could break down
    let it all out, finally be found.

    I'm tired of hiding from what hurts
    either way I still feel like dirt.

    I hate the fact that I can't cry
    day by day I'll sit ..........
