Amy, Don't feel bad. I had the same thing that has happened to me as well. I have always been picked on and teased my whole life. I would come home from school crying almost every day...

The darkness surrounds me.
It's getting so cold.
I'm all alone
With no one to hold.

My world is so empty.
All that's left is pain.
No sunshine to light my way,
Just never-ending rain.

I drown in tears.
My heart is crying.
No one seems to notice
My soul is dying.

Full of thoughts...small but meaningful. Sometimes we don't understand what's actually going on around us. We can't even express it to other, but we can express it through our powerful words and pens.

I loved your poem. I know exactly how you feel because I'm going through the same thing right now. Don't worry though, keep your head up. Let out the tears if you have to but don't give in into your sadness and pain. Do the things that take your mind off whatever it is that's making you feel lost. Never give in to the pain. It never helps, trust me I know from experience :)

I understand how you all feel, I am 45 years old and to this day hate crying, I hate showing that emotion. I was brought up being teased and called a baby if I cried. No one hugged me when I did instead I got yelled at and told that if I didn't stop I would be given something to cry about. At the age of ten I taught myself to just hold in the tears and all the feelings that were wanting to come out I taught myself how to be numb, and learned that I had no one I could depend on. My own family makes me feel like I am nothing and that's what I have grown up to believe, today I am learning that I am more than what others say I am and I have friends who do love me and hug me but it all still feels funny to me makes me feel like I am doing something wrong. I still have issues with crying in front of others or even alone because it makes me feel weak even thought I am learning that crying is not many times I feel so alone I have never had that time where you could cry in a pair of loving arms holding you and comforting you. I never have a feel I never will..

Don't feel bad. I had the same thing that has happened to me as well. I have always been picked on and teased my whole life. I would come home from school crying almost every day because of my weight and the way I look and so on. I would come home and all I wanted to do lay down and sleep and never wake up. I have even prayed that I would die in my sleep. Sometimes I still cry myself to sleep. I still feel the pain of hurting and feeling unwanted. I am 35 years old, and I still cry myself to sleep! Sometimes I don't even know why I am crying. It just comes when it wants to, and it's like I can't control it. I try to keep it together, but sometimes it hurts too much to try and hide it all.

I was spanked with a belt as a child and if I cried from the spanking, it would continue until I stopped crying. As an adult, I learned in a very hard way that its not good to show emotion.

I am going through the same situation. All the time my trust is broken and at last I am left all alone. Want to hug someone and cry loud, but life is not even giving me that chance.
It's true my SOUL is DYING.

I know how you feel but there will be happy times soon, you just have to keep trying and be patient for it to come. Yeah, everyone has sad times, but I just hope that all of you will soon find happiness inside your heart, even if it is just a little. Everyone has a little light inside them but doesn't know; just don't lose faith :)

This poem really touched me because this is how I feel all the times. I cry all the times and all I ever want is someone to hold and to love me the way I do them. My heart feels broken and I just don't know what to do.
