Secret Fears

by Amber   May 15, 2005

I stand alone
But cannot cry
For if I do
Then she'll ask why.

She'll want to know
Why tears I do shed
And she'll want to know
Why I cry myself to bed.

But I cannot tell her
No she cannot see
For if she did
She'd be sad for me.

She has her own worries
And sheds her own tears
So she doesn't need
To handle my fears.

Yet I live in pain
And tears do fall
But I can take it
I'll handle it all.

    Good poem, full of emotion and that's what makes a poem good. Good rhyme and flow.
    Add punctuation ,'s and stuff it creates more of a flow and tells the reader how you want it to be read.
