Hopeless Heart

(1991 / New Zealand)

A Painful Romance


Why does it hurt so much?
Every time we touch,
I don’t understand this
It was just a kiss

My heart feels like it’s caving in
Like it’s being stabbed with a thousand pins,
I don’t care how much it hurts, I need you
I love you and I know you love me too

Why do I feel this way?
I wish I was okay,
It’s not that I don’t love you
Because I do

I don’t know what’s wrong
I wish I was strong,
But it hurts, it hurts so much
Almost as if I was punched

When I’m with you everything’s okay
I wish that’s how it would always stay,
But when you’re gone
It feels so wrong

If it hurts this much when I’m with you
I don’t want to know what if feels without you,
I don’t ever want to let you go
I hope you know and I hope it shows

I never thought I would ever feel this way
Though I always hoped and prayed,
That one day someone like you would come along
And make me feel as if I belonged

I’d rather this pain
Which at most only cuts into my veins
Than the pain when we part
Because that would break my heart.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
