Hurting Poem

He was the love of my life. I felt like I was going to die. I told my friends about the break up, and the only thing they could say was, "Love hurts," but it's way deeper than that...

It will be OK. I'm kind of in that situation right now.

Love Hurts


Published by Family Friend Poems December 2010 with permission of the Author.

Everyone says that love hurts,
But that's not true.
Loneliness hurts.
Rejection hurts.
Everyone confuses these things with love.
But in reality love is the only thing in the world
That covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again.

Well I've been with my man for eight years and we have 3 beautiful kids together. Last year he went to Arizona and it took him eight months to even come back to us. Well I learned he got a girl pregnant while down there. He begged for my forgiveness and my love for him surpassed the baby situation. Even though we lost our fourth child and we decided to tie my tubes cause we both were suppose to be done. Now he came back and left again shortly after the birth of his "son" in Arizona. Two weeks ago he called and told us he will be home tomorrow and nothing for two weeks now. No phone call, no message no nothing. It hurts so bad when the man I love can't even call his family to let us know he is okay. I've called everywhere and everyone I could but have not found him. My hearts breaking and my world is falling apart and he obviously don't care because no call or nothing. I feel like I'm dying but have to be strong for my children.
