Hurting Poems

Poems on Being Hurt

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.

    • 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

    Sometimes I wonder how you do it.
    How can you sit back and watch yourself hurt someone so bad and not feel any guilt?
    You say things to me, about me, or behind me.
    And you still look at me the same way.

    I want to write about how you make me feel
    How every time I see your face I know that you're real
