poem by: Emilee Rodriguez
Written on Oct 04, 2013

I'm hurting.
Do you not understand?
There's something wrong with my head. 
I close my eyes and my heart cries.
For, I cannot keep the tears in their duct. 
I cry when no one's around
I'm quite, my mouth makes no sound
My mind does all the crying
My blood are their tears 
My heart cries just like a song.
It plays all night long

Yes I very much understand, apparently it's normal. So the head she'd tell me. Quiet, not quite. Keep writing while cry, it helps.

Soulful sad self awareness crafted well in short poem I liked it FYI small typo in Quiet--I think you meant Quiet Jude
Robert Folland commented:
The tears we shed should be mesmerized. The happy one's that dropped on the floor, recognized by a soul that is passionate. Love for yourself is a shine that no one can take, Be hole to your self and love your mistakes.

So you're basically saying that you're sad inside and no one can see it. You're hiding and you keep it all inside for no one to see. you put on a mask every day to hide your true feeling, and everyone believes the mask, not whats behind it....because their clueless to know what really lays behind the mask...its a good poem I really like it

When I lost Christie I stopped feeling. Although I portray tears I have a thalidomide face for I cannot show what feast upon me on the inside. I'm inspired by your metaphors to where as inside you feels.

Fauxcroft wade commented:
Alas this world appears so painful to people who view it with open eyes and see it for what it is. The duality of life means though that we need to experience the bad things to appreciate the good. The pain as well as the joy. The heartbreak as well as the love. Your words are amazing and in time if you make right choices and focus on self love and kindness your life too will be amazing if am sure.
Dean Delfer commented:
Emotional but compelling.
