It would be hard to hide behind a smile...

Most of time time no one sees you cry, you can wipe the tears away and carry on like you're fine. Just wondered what it would be like if tears left physical scars on you. Awful I suppose, as then everyone would know... but perhaps then you might get the support you needed. What would you do if you saw this girl...?
I imagine sad tear scars would fade over time, and happy tears would restore the skin like new :)

Yep, another piece of mine about what we show and what we hide. Things are much better for me now thanks, although what I've gone through has given me new perspectives I'm keen to get out of me and into my art. Hope this one isn't to dark or sad a drawing, just a concept I wanted to express :) Explored a bit more shading with an anime style face, similar to my Last Piece by DestinyBlue piece; was very fun to colour, think I probably need to push shadows deeper and loosen up without being scruffy XD

Peace, love and inner strength,
~Blue x

I'd probably run and hug this girl trying to comfort her and help her feel better. If tears really did leave scars my face would be damaged beyond repair. I cry very easily when I'm upset, and as I was severely bullied in school to the point I had fellow students threatening to shoot me, run me over in the parking lot, and even follow me home and run me over in my driveway I cried a lot when I was alone, and the tears still haven't stopped. I still sometimes cry for myself, but mostly I cry because I'm lost and don't know what to do when I suddenly have a new weight to carry. I try to smile and be strong, but more often than not when I'm alone in my room, I curl up in a corner and cry until I can't cry anymore. I know how it is to feel lost and broken like there's no one there, so when I find someone else who is hurting, I try to be a light in the dark or a lifeline for them. most shut me out, and I don't blame them, growing up I often shut others out and pretended nothing was wrong, but for those who let me in, I would go to the ends of the Earth and back if I had to just to help ease the pain they feel.

I don't cry. I just echo a heartbeat, and try to hold my breath and slip into blissful unconsciousness.
