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.

    Words cannot even begin to describe the agonizing pain. I can only listen to Birdy and cry. I'm stuck in this never-ending cycle.

  4. 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

    You will regret
    That you made me cry,
    That you didn't see your love in my eye,
    That you failed my heart and didn't even try.

    Sometimes I wonder how you do it.
