About the Poem

This poem is about a guy who I had very deep feelings for. He came around when he wanted to, and I unfortunately put up with it.

It Hurts

He walks along
Walking all alone
But he can't see
That what he needs is me
He comes to me,
Then he'll leave again
He doesn't know
Just what it does to me

It hurts to see him
Walking all alone
It hurts, to be me,
To want but to not have him
But he can't see
Oh how much he hurts me

I take him back
Time and time again
But when he leaves
It happens all again
I hurt inside
A pain that is so deep
And he . . . he doesn't know

He doesn't know my pain
Or how much he hurts me
He lives his life
Just fine without me
But me, I hurt,
I hurt for only him
And all this time
He still doesn't know

I reach for him
Reaching oh so far
But he's not there
Not there at all
He's gone away
Away once again
But he'll be back
Sometime the end

First of all a very very beautiful poem, keep up the good work. i totally love it even though its so sad :( i can definetly understand what you're feeling. i'm in the same position right now and it really hurts. i just cannot tell him what i feel right now and i think for now its a goodbye :/ but however i have to deal with it and we'll see what happens. Goodluck :) and once again good job!

I realy liked your poem thats just how i feel about a guy thet just broke my heart and left me not knowing why.
this poem reminds me of a love I haven't seen in 6 months when I finally walked away. I thought I was the only one that went through that and it actually brought back the pain i felt when I left him for good
