Hurting Poem


© Shelli
I thought it was a dream, I thought it wasn't real
But pain really hurts and its really how I feel
Memories keep coming back, and so do all of the tears
I hear your voice, and as quick as the smile came, it quickly disappears
I don't know what is happening, because you always held my hand

You said you would never let go, that is what I don't understand
So many promises you made, and more of them broken
Lost and confused, feels like I'm choking
A lot of things I did not say
Now I can't find my way

I feel like a boomerang, you throw me but not only that
Every time you throw me, I always seem to come back
Back to you, back to pain
Nothing has changed your still the same

I can not start over because I don't know where to start
I guess that is what happens when someone breaks your heart
If we are suppose to follow our dreams, why can't I follow you
Because now I am so lost, I wish you were lost without me to

  • This poem has made me realize how important life could be and how complicated things could be. I was in a relationship where by I was hurt, all that pain I felt everyday was painful like a pins all over my body. I forgave the person I loved with my life but then he did the same thing over again until he cheated on me and I had to give up and find someone who makes me happy finally in the end....
