Don't give up -
Just give me the tears
You can no longer cry,
And I promise -
I'll take it as a blessing
In the memory of your life

I promise that everyday
Tears will fall
While I think of you,
And they will be for you,
Not about you,
So that I know
Where you are now
Is a happier place

But if you try,
You won't be broken -
Let your tears
Be what seals the cracks
That have led you to this

Reveal, don't conceal
The emotion that strangles
The decision you yearn to make -
For then, and only then,
Shall you cry and show the world
You're strong enough
To show your pain
Instead of running away

But if that's your choice,
Simply remember me, and
Don't give up -
Just give me the tears
You can no longer cry,
And I promise -
I'll take it as a blessing
In the memory of your life
Suicide.
Ever want to cry, but... You just can't?
It's like hiding something that's already hidden from you...
And when the tears aren't there to distract, your mind begins to wander....

...Why?

'You're strong enough
To show your pain

......wow.....That hit me really hard. This is beautiful. I'm sorry for the (possible?) circumstances that may have spurned this beautiful poem though. :(

Glad I made an impact, there, at least. 
Possible-ish, you could say... This was specifically inspired form how I felt a few months ago when a friend of mine was on her last thread of whether or not she was going to go through with it. She never did, at least... But she's still fighting and has her dips.

I can't explain it, but it happens to me too. More often than i'd like to admit unfortunately.

I know how you feel, there... It hurts to admit, and hard to face that it happens so often...

But I feel like once you can freely admit it, it could start to get better, ya know?
