Here I am a mess of emotions
Afraid to let them out
I don’t want to feel out of control
Yet I am not sure that there is any
Stopping that if I


In a room full of people 
And I still feel all alone
I miss my best friend
My shoulder to lean on
When I needed to 


I feel my eyes start to water 
I better go and hide 
I wouldn’t want anyone to see
The pain I feel inside
I don’t want them to see me


It’s going to be a long night 
That is for sure
Nightmare after nightmare
Why can’t the memories give me a little rest?
I feel so drained 
Weak and defeated 
I feel like I am fighting a never-ending battle
And I have the short end of the stick
I keep wondering if I am 
Always going to fight this alone
So many times I have been told
To let those teardrops fall
Yet here I am fighting them
Daring my self not to 


Even though in my heart I wish I could just let go
I wish I had someone 
To cry on

    I always fight the tears and hide them from others...most my cries are alone too, though it is hard to hold them back in certain situations...hope you find that shoulder...I like the way you crafted this piece!
