I don’t know why
I don’t know why I must cry
In my heart is where my sorrow lies
To the surface of my eyes
The salty water urns to rise
All happiness suddenly die’s
Covered up by all the lies
My dry mouth quickly sigh’s
I would run from the darkness if I was wise
But I was held in place by family ties
My heart shrinks smaller than its natural size
And then I knew why
I knew why I must cry

i wrote this a while ago and i wrote it when i was crying one day and i was thinking of running away but as the poem discribes...i was held in place by family ties.

I loved the feeling and how it was short and very rythmic. I really felt the way u must have when u wrote this, which is a very good thing. I have felt the same way many times before. Keep writing poetry. Thanx (:

"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." C.S. Lewis

A few apostrophes were there when they weren't supposed to be, but overall I did like the feeling to it very much.
