Don't Let Them See You Cry
Author: RainFlyer8

vinebar

Donít let them see you cry
They didnít even know her name
They didnít think she was the same
It was not fair of them to Judge
Thatís how she came to bear this grudge
She went to school and did her thing
But felt she was a puppet on strings

There was not time for them to blink
There was time for her to think
Scream, Sigh, Die inside
Just donít let them see you cry
A blink of an eye, an answer wrong
A turn of the head and she was gone

They never even heard her speak
But she came week after week
They neglected her day after day
Like an old shirt to throw away
She used to thinkĒ Whatís wrong with meĒ
It was something she just could not see

There was not time for them to blink
There was not time for her to think
Scream, sigh, Die inside
Just donít let them see you cry
Thatís it, Itís done, a silent song
A turn of the head and she was gone

How does she feel, is she crying
Out there somewhere bleeding, dieing
When we ignored her we lived our lives
We missed the sadness in her eyes
She had no friends that we knew
If only she had but a few

There was not time for them to blink
There was not time for her to think
Scream, sigh, die inside
Just donít let them see you cry
The sun has set, the day is done
A turn of the head and she was gone

She would be here like before
Laughing smiling, so much more
It it dark, is it black
Will she, can she ever come back
We all feel guilty as we weep
Because our wounds run so deep

There was not time for them to blink
There was not time for her to think
Scream, Sigh, Die inside
Just donít let them see you cry
Canít speak, canít cry, there voice gone
A turn of the head and she was gone

Tíwas her mother who found her there
Crying at her blatant stare
ďWhy did she do it?Ē They had to ask
because of her treatment in her past
we were wrong we realized
misjudging the emotion in her eyes

There was not time for them to blink
There was not time for her to think
Scream, Sigh, Die inside
Just donít let them see you cry
Silent tears, screams, a silent song
A turn of the head and she was gone
Scream, Sigh die inside
She never let them see her cry

Rain

Lovely Rain! Like anonymous said, this would make a nice song, since it was repetitive in the poem! Is it one? If so, you did a GREAT job! Since I can't pat your back physically, I'll imagine that you're there! I give you your props! One more thing Rainflyer8, just remember, age doesn't matter when constructing a poem, just as long as it's self composed and not copied or plagarized....lol.... Make an album Rainflyer8! You've got skills! *Meri*
