It Only Hurts - Poem by Kat Smith

It only hurts when I breath


Poison air

And I know you've been here

It only hurts when I open my eyes

See all the world destroyed

All the dead girls and boys

It only hurts when I move

Gravity pulls my under ground

It only hurts when I run

Away from all pain

It only hurts when i cry

Tears making there canals

Burning down my face

It only hurts when it hurts

    I understand this in several ways. You say it only hurts, but in this case saying that amplifies it to the reader (Report) Reply

    Nice write Kitty. I have to breath the poison of society, it smells. I breath shallow. Even when it feels good, there's always the waiting for it to feel bad again, so there's rarely any enjoyment. Whatever you do, don't read my poems. Peace. (Report) Reply
