Hurting Poems

Poems on Being Hurt from Love

In a loving relationship, there are often hurt feelings. We have certain expectations of our partner, and when they do not live up to them we are likely to feel a sense of betrayal. The truth is that if we put our hurt aside for a moment we may realize that our lover was not even aware of the expectations that we had for them. These expectations are probably a carryover of fantasies that we have in our heart of how a perfect lover behaves. It is OK to have these expectations. However, if we expect our partner to fulfill them for us we must at let them know what we would like.

  4. Tears Of A Broken Heart

    I have given all my love to you, but what do I get in return?
    A broken heart.
    I have given you my heart, and you stomp on it like a doormat.
    I have given you my youth and you took advantage of my un-experienced heart and played with my emotions.

  7. Lost

    • By Shelli
    • Published: July 2009

    I thought it was a dream; I thought it wasn't real,
    But pain really hurts and it's 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.
