Hiding hurt

The wrong and the pain
the feelings insane

the fights and the hurt
the hiding afterwards is worse

to explain and to open
the things i have buried
the wounds that have healed
the bruises i was wearing and the scars that have sealed

i dont want to talk and dont want to tell
its a part of my life written off as pure hell
i got out, i got free
and at last re-found me

but maybe want to say to other hurting girls
theres better things and people in this big wide world.

Go find them ladies;)x

    Hi Sally, how are you?

    Strange I didn't think you were referring to something only women go through. I'm not a woman and I do hide my hurt all the time, plenty in my life I'd classify as pure hell also but it's not a specific time period, more of an emotional intensity I still experience maybe once or twice a week. Feeling hurt can be a lot more confusing if you don't understand exactly what it is that's hurting you, if maybe the whole thing came from inside the whole time...thanks for sharing Sally. -Yoni
