This is actually a poem I had to write for English class, but it was so pretty I just had to upload it.

No one knows how hard it is not to cry.
The tears won’t stop, no matter how hard I try.
I try to tell you, try to make you see,
Try to have you reach up and feel them—Why won’t you look at me?

No one knows how to make me smile.
But even if they did, it would only last for a little while.
The pain inside me will never go away,
It’s impossible to get rid of; I can only keep it at bay.

No one knows what it is I want.
Your memory is always in the back of my mind, ready to haunt.
You are what I want, you are what makes me smile, you can dry my tears.
Only you can stop these fears.

All you have to do is look at me.
