A Cry

by dolly21

We pass by each other 

Each day, we smile as we walk by

We talk about little things

Like the weather

And school

And the genius behind that sweet cold jelly

We both seem to live peaceful lives

But if only you knew

What happens when the door closes

If only you knew the tears I cry at night

Sometimes at day

Sometimes through my dreams and screams at night

If only you knew

How many times I have considered suicide

How many times I have actually put the knife against my skin

Wanting to feel pain elsewhere

Other than in my heart

How many times that I just want to scream

‘Can you hear me?’

‘Look at me…please….Just come cry with me’

‘I need help….please save me..’

If only you could see the pain in my eyes;

The struggle to hold on to life

‘Hey, how are you?’

(‘Save me please…I need help…I am hanging on to life by a thread…This misery is too much for me to bear), my heart screams.

But instead with a smile on my lips, I reply: ‘I’m fine. Thank you.’


You don’t know pain until you’re staring at yourself in the mirror with tears streaming down your face and you’re begging yourself to just hold on and be strong. That is Pain – Unknown
