Hurt In Sheets Of Tears And Sweat - Poem by Jen Perry

It hurts in my heart and my fingers feel numb from pain or love for someone of something undefined
My tears are salty and drops from green eyes fall into red lips with shameless words
An old first real love, I miss him
Have I lost my chance, should I just wait?
Real feelings for a guy who can’t open himself to me but hey I’ve dealt with it before but yeah, my heart still weeps
He’s got a girlfriend but
I should have know better, I choose not to
On track with all else
But I’m held by him and I think I will be forever no matter what
I guess I should just live, safely and stop thinking of destiny?
It just hurts
A sacrifice made but he wasn’t worth it
Nothing lost, nothing gained?
There’s always something gained
I must remember that.
Remember that.

    You most definately will get over him and you will find much better than him. You have a quite different style of writing. I enjoyed reading something with a fresh aproach.

    Kind regards
