Don'T Hurt My Feelings - Poem by Gabriella Franco

Someone punch me. i want to feel pain
Bruise me. Hurt me. scar me in my flesh
Slap me, kick me, push me around
Pick me up and slap me to the ground

stab me. cut me, make me bleed
But please, nobody hurt my feelings
Cliche? yes i know, but its what he did to me
My heart bled for him... now i don't want it to bleed

We were friends, and he was my buddy
He made me feel like i meant something
Heart, broken again. Break my BONES
Put your hand on me so I don't feel alone

I guess I've never been a real good friend
But I never understood what I did wrong
All my best friends would lose my trust or leave
None would every physically hurt me

But please! Don't say anything, just hit me again
Hit me so I forget. Hit me and send
Me flying 'cross the room. And I land with a thump
Kick me again as I lay in a lump

Distort my features so I don't recognize myself
Make me look like anybody else
Bruise me, scar me, make me bleed
But please... Don't hurt my feelings

    I feel what you are saying. It is easier to deal with physical hurt than with a hurting heart. It is better for someone to kill you than to hurt your feelings because hurt feelings kill someone slowly, the pain never seems to go away. Good work Gabriella.

    You did it again: Created a killer poem with an abstract core idea. This one is soo great... you must get tired of me saying that...but really; 'kick me as I lay in a lump' it's the ultimate in underhanded fighting but it would still hurt less than 'good bye.'
    Definitely suceeded in creating a mental image too.
