Suicidal Tears - Poem by niakeva thomas

Invisible tears roll down my face, and hit the pillows on my bed,
No one sees the tears I cry, or the invisible blood I've bled,
Just because I don't ask, doesn't mean I don't need help, I do,
Help, to stop my sorrow, attempt suicide, and the cutting too,
Every droplet of water, that I cry, to you they are unseen,
You see everyone around me, but I remain your invisible teen,
I cry not tears of happiness, but instead tears of the dead,
I bleed to escape the suicide, thoughts inside my head,
I won't put up my hand, to wipe away all the tears,
Instead, I'll stare you in the face, like I've done all of these years,
You pay me no attention, but your attention is what I need,
Or I'll turn back to suicide, off your absence is what I feed,
Your absence has taken control of me, as theses suicidal tears I cry,
So please stop me from suicide, or I might just have to die,
