You Cry Alone

"laugh and the world laughs with you,
cry and you cry alone"

how true and sad these words once penned
for this I've learned, yet learn again
that when I bloom and smile with glee
the world and life will laugh with me
I'm not alone....never alone
the joy is not for me alone!

Yet when the demons heart possess
and come to steal my happiness
when all around is darkest gloom
and none to rescue from the tomb
I am alone.....I cry alone
the grief I bear....I bear alone!

I know your heart is bleeding too
for all have been unkind to you
and none can see the bitter tear
nor chase the goblin of your fear
You feel cry alone
the pain you THINK alone!

Now turn to me; remember this
I know this pain, this poisoned kiss
depression has a hold of me
and this I say with certainty
though other hearts are made of stone
you're not alone....NEVER alone!

Eileen Manassian

    Truth is spoken! There are a lot of things we do alone but still are those around us who care, some more some less but still there are people who care. When moments like that come we have to pray for strength and hope our prayers will be heard by someone near us so as to rush to our rescue. A wonderful didactic poem, dear Eileen.

    I am favoriting this because I know how it is to feel alone, to write bleeding words and cry alone, to have the ups and downs and all arounds, but we are not alone, we have each other..hugsxx

    Your writing is such a joy to experience. Your carefree persona is addicting yet knowing sometimes the darkness leaks in is comforting to someone who possesses the same overlook on life. Accept the bad as a lesson learned and turn it into light is what I live by. Thank you for the posting of the Robin Williams quote. So much of depression is hidden and not discovered until it's too late. Very sad. He was my favorite actor.
