Hurting Poem

My name is Jasmine, and I have a man I love with all of my heart. But we love with pain. In this poem I am letting people know that you don't have to love with pain. You can stop it at any time. But in my situation I just don't know how to stop it. Or I may have gotten so immune to it that I am afraid to find the outcome of it when I do stop.

I'm 15. I got my first crush in 3rd grade. I still like him. A lot. Over the years I've liked other people too, but never nearly as much as him. My friends have gone through similar things...

Unconditionally Painfully In Love


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009 with permission of the Author.

This pain is taking its toll,
But my love it never gets old.
The trials and defeated emotions
Keeping me sane with magical potions.
The heart that keeps my blood flowing,
That pain that keeps me down but going.
If the pain leaves and love stays,
How would life be for me?
Would I have a hole in my heart
Where hurt and pain used to be?
Is there a way out of this
Loving, painful misery?
Is there a way into this
Love that I have failed or neglected to receive?
Is this love?
Unconditionally loving you is
Bringing me pain,
But it keeps me sane because I have you.
Am I kidding myself?
Am I in denial that you love me back?
Am I just a dream away from reality?
Am I making believe that I love you?
I think not...
But pain keeps me going.
My heart keeps my blood flowing.
You keep my life glowing.
Jesus keeps me believing.
My calmness is showing,
But my happiness is hiding
From pain and love.
I unconditionally, painfully love you.

I'm 15. I got my first crush in 3rd grade. I still like him. A lot. Over the years I've liked other people too, but never nearly as much as him. My friends have gone through similar things where they thought they loved someone but they didn't like them back. I refuse to say I love him because I believe I neither know enough nor am old enough to say or determine that. Lately though, he's all I think about. And I don't like it. I wish I didn't like him, but I do and it does hurt. I guess what keeps me going is God and stubbornness. At night though I can't sleep and I cry. I used to never cry because nothing was ever emotional enough to make me cry. But not with this. It's been almost 8 years now that I've liked him. He means more than just about anything to me. I would do just about anything to ensure his safety and well-being, but I know that we'll never happen.

I know this feeling pal. Reading something so familiar by someone made me feel that I'm not alone out here. Thanks.

I'm 13 years old and I want to share my love story.
When I was 12 years old, there was a boy in the other class I liked. I didn't understand what all those feelings were about, but then one day I realized that I'm in love with him. I kept my feelings from him because I was afraid that something bad would happen if he knew. I cried all night for him, prayed every day for him to love me, thinking about him all day long, and it goes on and on like that with painfulness all the time. One day he confessed to his friends that he loves me so much. I was happy with that, but he was a bad boy because he was seeing other girls, so I hated him. When I'm 13 a guy that's 15 years old confessed his love for me and I loved him back. I was so happy because we share the same manner and we're just the same, so I loved him so so much more than the other boy. I hope that it helps you to move on.

You loved him too much, but you’re saying that he is seeing other girls and that was the reason you left him. A boy who loves you must only see you, only love you. Where there is love between two people then the bond between them can’t end till they die. Share your love till they reach their limit.

WELL, I also have a man problem. There is NO joy in our relationship we always misunderstand each other. We have our differences. I do not know how to solve this issue. I know that he loves me the way I do, but it's not working out...

The basis of a relationship is to understand each other, so misunderstanding comes when we don't. We are different in all our ways, like beliefs, thinking, and morals. They all come from our cultures, family, friends, and personal principles. When a friendship turns into a relationship, the openness starts, and this is to express all that makes you (and your partner).

JUST spend some time with him because he is your life. He loves you. Misunderstanding is a small issue. Be free and spend time. Try to show your love to him by music.
