Hurting Poem

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

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.

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.

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 had that happen when I was younger and had forgiven her for it, but he was a coward and couldn't face me after he knocked up my baby sister. What a lowlife. Little did my sister know he also dealt drugs, and she gave custody of her daughter to the guy.

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.

I have a boyfriend for 16 years. He keeps cheating on me over and over again, and I keep forgiving him. But it doesn't work. Me going back with him just gives him the right away to keep doing what he’s doing and saying it’s okay. I don't know what else to do.

I love this poem. I can tell you wrote it from your heart. One of my favorite from this website.
