About the Poem

I wrote this in a pit of quiet desperation. So alone. So many obstacles in my future. All I could do was cry. And in my life, I have to hide to cry.

I Hide To Cry

I hide to cry
because I have no where to call my own
and "happily ever after" is a land too far away,
just after once- upon- a- time; just this side of the rainbow

and no one really cares anyway

I hide to cry
because I know I will never leave this place
and dreams don't really come true
its just all make- believe

and it really doesn't matter

I hide to cry
because my weakness brings my tears
and I have no one to hold me close
no one here who loves me

and no one really cares anyway

I hide to cry
because I embarrass the moon
and she is my only friend
but she's too far away to hold my hand

and it really doesn't matter anyway

I hide to cry
because no one really cares anyway
and is this pain even real
it really doesn't matter

and no one really cares anyway

I hide to cry
because no one validates my pain
and no one really cares
so why should I

and it really doesn't matter anyway

This poem is beautiful. It puts into words how I feel. Too many of us have to "Hide to Cry", and the depression doesn't hurt us, but the hiding does. ~hugs~

What truly wonderful insight. We all want so much to be loved and cared for and yet so many of us hide. You got that point across well.
After reading this poem I felt as if I had told my experience to someone and they chose to write about it.. The pain in the poem is real- I felt it inside and outside as I could do nothing but cry -thinking there was someone out there somewhere who understands my pain.. This is a great poem!!! Mad props and respect go out to to Miss Cech... Veronica, I felt your pain as it was mine, now you know you are not alone--someone does care
