Hurt - Poem by Rosie Bourget

Sometimes in life
Sooner or later
We can be sad and bitter
To our surroundings
That is because
Our lives are tormented by nightmares
Nightmares that are our reality
As the years pass by, they grow bigger
Being nurtured by our growing sorrow
Sometimes we look at our lives and wonder
Is life worth all this pain we have been through
Then we realize our loved ones
Are the reasons why we become this way
They are the ones that make our hearts bleed
All they give us is pain
That we cannot explain
When we try to make it
They go around and break it
They go all the way
To block our way
And then here we are sitting in the dark
With a broken heart!

    hurt
    the hurt
    the loving heart

    they break it
    make flat

    o; yet we the love
    live in light
    kick the dark................///

    A poignant and heart rending write.
    The pain is greater when it is caused by our
    loved ones.
    But sometimes the pain they caused fuels us to
    be better, strive harder to have a life of our own, far
    better than the life they have.
    Pain will be.healed in God's own time.
    A wonderful poem that deals with realities of life.
    Well conveyed write.

    Family members tend to depend on each other for support, advice, and money, among other things. We also tend to be emotionally invested in one another. When someone you are so committed to says or does something to hurt you, it is perceived as worse than when someone you are less committed to does the same thing. I appreciate you Rose Marie. Thanks a bunch for your comment.

    N-ightmare hugs my brain
    I-nk of dream kisses my pain
    G-rasps me fully with the bundle of bone
    H-urts me amid my sweet dream
    T-ricks and traps my to walk on showing path
    M-erely I follow a cheated dreamy birth
    A-im is destined to beat my sanity
    R-ightly I find myself in insanity
    E-rase O dear all my path of tears

    ACROSTIC!

    'All they give us is pain
    That we cannot explain
    When we try to make it
    They go around and break it
    They go all the way
    To block our way
    And then here we are sitting in the dark
    With a broken heart! ' - These are heart rending lines! Despite the despair, the poem is appealing!

    We poets, when we speak from the heart, we say it just like it is. We don't have the microphone but we have the pen. Thank you Khairul Ahsan.

    Hi Fer,

    I hope you feel better soon. Think about others when you are feeling down. Talk to people who will lift your spirits.

    I believe that whatever the situation we face in life, the pains, sorrows, disappointments... we must learn to keep thing in stride. We must propel our spirits to greater altitude, so that we can be able to look down on our tribulations. I like the articulation and penning of the poem. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report)Reply
