Hurting Poem

Poem About Hurt, Lies, And Darkness

There are a lot of my feelings in this poem. It's about heartbreak and sadness. I was hurt badly by my last boyfriend, and this is meant for him to know how much he hurt me, but it's also a way of expressing my feelings without having to explain them.

What's Known Today, Yet Lost Yesterday


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2015 with permission of the Author.

Hurt, lies, darkness
Truth becomes nothing
Lies become everything
Hurt is the only feeling you know
Darkness becomes your new best friend
Smiles fade
Tears remain
No happiness left
Sorrow and hatred swarming all around
Hearts once whole
Become a million sharp pieces scattered about
What to do
What to say
Words can't make sounds
Silence throughout the day
Silence throughout the night
What used to be
Is now nothing but a vivid memory of days passed
Trying to remember is a waste
But so is moving from your place
Paralyzed yet so much feeling
Hard to continue walking but it must be done
Black and white, no color
Life has become a nightmare
Hard to escape
Hurt, lies, darkness
Is the life you know today
