"These eyes that weep." The sorrow here is almost sacred; it's beautiful!
"Those who know that inside I have died." Oh wow! The utter pain and hopelessness here is powerful and well-written!
"Hide the tears that fall inside." A wonderful depiction of hidden inner-pain.
It flowed and rhymed well. I think I like this edited version the most, but the first one is still nice too!

This is not the usual structure to your poetry but you should do it more often as it works well for you. I agree with what Isca said about your choice of words but for me the penultimate stanza is the favourite.
You do a lot of good writing so it's always good to see output from you.

"My mind is rendered calm." Lovely!
"Just to circumvent." Nice word-choice!
The final stanza is my favourite. The message and imagery is great. The poem rhymes well and the structure's good. :)
