She Hasn't Seen Me Cry Yet
I sit out on the front step
Face hung in my hands
She hasn't seen me cry yet
She wouldn't understand
There are things I haven't told her
Words I haven't said
So I lie awake and hold her
I hold it in instead

I sit out on the front step
Holding back the tears
She hasn't seen me cry yet
I've hidden it for years
There are things she isn't in on
Stories never told
So I wait until she's long gone
To let it all unfold

I sit out on the front step
Fighting my own pain
She hasn't seen me cry yet
I slowly go insane
There are secrets that I'm keeping
Little tiny lies
But honesty is creeping
It's falling from my eyes

I sit out on the front step
Pretending I'm "okay"
She hasn't seen me cry yet
I'm just pushing her away
There's no more sense in lying
I'm sure that she can see
Each time that I've been crying
She is surely on to me

I sit out on the front step
Just getting up the nerve
She hasn't seen me cry yet
But I'm sure that she has heard
The things I haven't told her
Are catching up with me
I can't bring myself to hold her
I can't stand when she holds me

I sit out on the front step
I think she's had her fill
She hasn't seen me cry yet
And I doubt she ever will
The words I was concealing
Have a life now of their own
Suddenly revealing
That they've left me all alone

Just checking back to see what new masterpiece you've written lately. Don't change a thing. It was great, as usual.

i have no suggestions because it is written from your heart and the way you wanted it to be and for that it is greatly written. as long as your heart and mind is put into it thats all that matters.

So emotional! I can feel your pain, and so want to embrace you with a warm hug! Excellent job on the poem as always.

I like your work as it is...
It is your innermost thoughts and it tore at my heart...
Sad, but solid read...
