Hurting Poem

My absolute first love. You can never forget, but hopefully can find a way to move on and still carry those good memories.

Latest Shared Story

Words cannot even begin to describe the agonizing pain. I can only listen to Birdy and cry. I'm stuck in this never-ending cycle.

Living Again

Running, running
far away
Escaping dreams
of yesterday.
Faster, faster
there I go
Forgetting things
you'll never know.
Dying, dying
deep inside
Find a place
for me to hide.
Catching, catching
up with me
No more running
from reality.
Stopping, stopping
let me cry
Finding a way
to say goodbye.

I love reading hurt poems, and I write music about hurt. The worst pain I had was a few weeks ago when I received a heart retching text from my boyfriend saying I was too complicated for him and that he was in love with someone else and I just wasn’t enough.

Shortly after, my older sister had wanted to move back to Texas, so we took her, and she was moving in with a guy she loved and had been dating for a few months. Guess who it was. My ex-boyfriend. I was so shocked and hurt. I still, to this day, love him and miss him so much. He was my everything, and I do hate my sister for doing that to me. We hardly talk anymore because the pain just kills me. I’m hoping to heal through writing and through people like you who can express yourselves through writing.

I am so sorry to hear this. Healing others helps heal one's self. You just must eat the advice you give, which is always sweeter when the plate isn't your own. I only lost my love. I couldn't imagine losing family at the same time. You're in my thoughts. I will pray for you.

I enjoy hurting poems very much. All types of poems here touch my soul. I often read sad love poems at nighttime with sweet pieces of music. So fantastic to curl up with them.
