SOB STORY
I slowy walk into the room, hoping that noone can see
The tears in my eyes, the sorrow in my soul, or the emptiness inside of me
I hold my head up high as I'm walking through the crowd
My heart, inside, is weeping, but I proudly hold it down
I know it's best to let it out, to let my feelings show
But i don't want to tell a sob story, rather not let you know
Because i don't want your pity, or you to feel sorry for my grief
I just want to be by myself, to mourn my loss in peace
I know you know that something's wrong. I know that I won't tell.
Because I know what's going on. And I know too well.
You just want to feel better about yourself for helping me heal my soul
But i won't let you in, won't let you help me. Noy you, not anyone. No, no.
I won't have my suffering as another notch on your belt
You have no idea how much i'm hurting, how much pain i've felt
So don't even think for a second that you can help me through
Because noone can help me. Not her, not him, not me, not you.

I can feel your pain and I think my daughter feels as you do...Let no one in but her poetry let's it out.

This poem is not about any event at all. I just wrote it because i felt like it. I'm not mourning, I have no pain.

MuffyMercado, Our 'nightmares' are our own - I agree. But, so many have them and so many are about the same things that the 'experience' is often much more 'shared' than we knew. As for the poem - I don't critique, I listen. Chris T.

Muffy the fact that you used your poetry to express your pain about the experience shows some depth. You won't let anyone in, but your poem let you out. Also, you want to check your spelling. (noone... no one. i...I)
