I like to cry myself to sleep at night.

I cry for my cat who was run over.

I cry for my father who left me.

I cry for the friends I have lost.

And I cry for the bullies who push me in the halls.

I cry for me, myself, and I.

I cry for the body that I don't have.

And I cry because I'm not happy.

I cry for my broken family.

I cry for lost love.

And I cry for the unwanted.

I cry for the people death has taken from me.

Every night my pillow soaks,
gathering the tears that I shed.
By morning they are gone
and no one knows I cried myself to sleep.
Let's just make this clear, this is not about me. My friend told me that they cried themselves to sleep, and I wanted to write something about it.

I've cried myself to sleep many times over lost love and bullies and not being happy...

This is a really sweet poem.
I sometimes cry myself to sleep, so I think I somewhat know how your friend feels.
I hope she feels better.

Very touchy, I felt the sadness hidden behind the simplicity of the poem. It is indeed a very sad feeling to be all alone.

Normally, I don't like these kind of poems, they can come off as sappy and cliche, without any real volume or depth to them.
But this is something I can relate to, so while I'm not sure it isn't cliche, it's still touching. I like it.

I got rejected by two people this week.
I loved the second one more than the first,
so the first one wasn't a HUGE deal,
but losing to the second one... hurt...
