Silent tears

Listing to them talk
So careless and fun
They said we were friends
But they still don't listen
Ignored again, I'm forgetting to care

I put on a fake smile
And act like I'm okay,
A master in disguise
A mask to hide my pain

I've finally had enough
I get up and walk away
They don't even notice,
It's like i was never there
I look back,
Silent tears run down my face
Then i quickly compose myself
Like nothing ever happened

I sit back down
Again unnoticed
My eyes get glossy
But i refuse to cry
But the silent tears are coming
This time they wont end

I leave like a ghost
No one sees or hears
And head home,
The tears are no more
But i still don't belong

I can't figure out
Why they never see
The emotional pain
That ignoring me brings
I should end it all,
No one would miss me

I do the unthinkable
And my last silent tear falls

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
