Note to readers: this was written when I was 16. I found the notepad today and have made one or two amendments
Please cry those tears you have inside, you need to let them go.
You know it’s fine to weep sometimes, so darling tell me so.
What is it that’s hurting you, what’s making you so sad?
Is it the emptiness you feel, from the love that you once had?
Please cry tonight, it is okay, to show just how you feel,
Please dry those eyes, and realise, that feeling hurt is real.
