  1. 41. I'm Hiding Deep Inside

    • By Rachel Zalakos
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2011

    This poem reflects exactly what I feel, but will never tell my family or friends. It shows how I hide behind my mask, which is slowly coming apart. It says how I don't tell them because I can deal with it in my own way, and they don't need to worry.

    Can no one see this smile I'm faking,
    See how, inside, I'm constantly shaking?
    These people all claim they know me well,
    Yet no one can see through my crumbling shell?

    This is truly what I feel. Their hopes that I'll be something they think of is fading. It's just killing me. I have no one to express myself to. I don't want someone to feel or even know what...

  2. 42. I'm Going To Explode

    • By Kim

    I'm going to explode,
    If I stay here any longer.

  3. 43. Cheated My Love

    • By Tanya
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2010

    To every girl who has been treated like a fool by their own father, this is dedicated to you.

    Growing up was tough because of you
    You left and didn't care what I went through
    Without you, I survived and grew

  4. 44. You Left Me For No Reason

    I was only 15 months old when my mom left me. My dad wouldn't let me spend the night with her until I was 5 because she would always take me to someone else's house and leave me there. I cry sometimes still, but I have another mom who is much better.

    You had me, you left me, you never cared.
    I was your second child and still you weren't prepared.

    On the lonely nights when I was sad,

  5. 45. You Don't Really Love Me

    • By Emily Smith
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2011

    I am only a 14 year old girl. This poem describes how hard it was me when I was little growing up without a mom. She left my father, four brothers, and I when I was only 2 years old. Being I was young, I didn't remember her and just assumed that everybody only had a dad. I quickly learned this wasn't true, and realized that my brother's "made up stories" about our alcoholic, cheating mother were true. I also learned that if she loved me, she never would have left.

    You left when I was only two,
    Daddy had no idea what to do.
    You never turned to say bye,
    If you had, you would have seen Daddy cry.

  6. 46. If Only Walls Could Talk

    • By Bonnie Reed
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2014

    I'm living with depression, countless nights of waking up screaming from nightmares, beating myself up, cutting, crying, screaming. My dad tried to kill me when I was little, and I watched my mom get raped. I'm constantly trying to be a better person. This is aimed at all my friends for if something does happen to me, I want to express myself without doing something stupid.

    If only walls could talk,
    They'd tell you about me,
    And how they hear me scream
    And watch me while I bleed.

  7. 47. Battle Within Myself

    • By Kristin Lore
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    When I can't sleep, writing poetry helps me. But it shows too much of me, the side I don't want people seeing. This poem, I think, is TMI. But something about it, I think it's suitable. I'm sitting here at my computer with my eyes glazing over, trying to think of something meaningful to say about this poem, but I think it says it all.

    Have you ever sat up at night
    And just let your barrier down?
    Brick by brick.
    I've sat in silence and cried

  8. 48. Am I Good Enough?

    • By Ken
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2013

    I didn't feel like I was heard by anyone, including my family, so I stopped trying and wrote this poem.

    Sometimes I feel unimaginable pain.
    It's always in my mind, within my brain.
    It dwells inside all of my heart
    And inside my veins.

  9. 49. The Weeping Willow

    • By Chris Trottier
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2014

    Hey, Chris Trottier here, author of "The Weeping Willow." I've suffered from depression for many years, let it be from loneliness, hate, abandonment or just simple sadness. Youngest in the pack, both from mother and father's children from previous relationships, I never really had someone to talk to or anything. Being the unpopular guy, you tend to be bullied and be stuck in a zone where you're always alone. Perhaps you feel the same; if so, I hope you enjoy "The Weeping Willow."

    Each night I find myself sitting against the tree,
    Hating myself, locking my heart and throwing away the key,
    I sit there and wait, just hoping for the someone who may care.
    No one ever comes, nor will they, I am aware.

  10. 50. Dear Mom

    • By Anonymous
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2012

    I wrote this poem one day after me and my mom got into a really big fight, and she began to bring things up. My mother doesn't like the fact that I'm gay. She kicked me out when she found out. I really wish she could see how much she is hurting me. We used to be really close. Now we hardly talk.

    This pain I feel inside I can no longer hide.
    Because of you, I just wanna die.
    You told me you would always be here and never let me fall.
    Why did you lie?

    I have a friend whom I've been in love with for the past three years. He has no idea how I really feel about him. He's been through a lot in the past few years and he's changed so much, and it's killing me to see him hurting so much.

    I look deep into your eyes
    but all I see are lies
    where there was hurt and suffering
    there's now a black hole of nothing

  16. 56. Lonely Too Long

    I wrote this poem because due to my shyness and timidity, I feel isolated from meaningful relationships with those around me. I've struggled with loneliness for a long time. The girl in the story is me, sitting in my room, holding myself and watching the storm outside as I often do when I feel alone. The poem describes the reasons behind my loneliness: lack of constant friendships, shyness, being ignored, and more. God is my Comforter during these times. I wouldn't be able to handle it without Him.

    The rain is pouring down again,
    And for that she thanks God.
    Maybe it will wash away the burning stain
    That's hurting her heart tonight.
