Hurt me

Hurt me with the truth of who I am

You told me that I could change the world
Faith in me, when no one else has any
You say you cant love me, I am too weak
I cry at your words, reminding me that I am
You say to paint my pain away 
Who are you to hurt me with the truth
Who are you to love me so much
Why don’t you love me less
Close your eyes and just be with me
Who cursed me this way
Just stay with me one more day
And let me cry another day

Why do I want the pain you give 
I am no pain worshiper, like you
Let me alone, and smile in my bliss
Or maybe ignorance isnt
I don’t know anymore
I just want to lie here and cry
Nursing the truth of who I am
tomorrow i will be stronger 
and then you will love me.....

    It's the first one but possibly the purest! Cherish this one. When YOU change look back on it to REMIND yourself how far you've come. Thanks for the great comments! Keep up the writes... you have great talent.

    There is much confusion in this one. Does she love you or does she not or is it do you love yourself or do you not love yourself? Keep the pen flowing for in writing we can work out the emotions and confusion. Sara
