Alas, you need to love
to be lovable

Our love, meanwhile,

with deep green ocean eyes.

God take control

MY head 
My heart
The end to my start
Love hurts
It kills
the despair it fills
My body 
My soul
God take control!

Been five years today

Been five years today
Miss the joy you brought to me
I'll never forget
Those were loving, tender times
Years ago but yesterday

Stationary Prisoner

bidding her farewell,
mist of unsaid confessions
rail track  forever
in legs turned heavy anklets 
--stationary prisoner--

Short Love Hurts poem by A.E. Rivenbark| Details | |

Smoke Detector

I stood there naked in the hall 
Bleary-eyed, as you
Screeched out your fury
I could be on fire for you
But all you do is belch smoke

Short Love Hurts poem by John Pen| Details | |

Oops, I did it again

Fine line between right and wrong
I would swear he was Mr Right
But alas, just another awful song
He was so uptight and not too bright

Short Love Hurts poem by billy bier| Details | |

Times

Times so close 

time far away 

Times of silence

Time to say

Time to live
And dream
And die

Time is short

The blink of an eye

Short Love Hurts poem by Robert Candler| Details | |

First Romantic Verse, 1960

Quiet night.
Quiet love...
Never told.
Damn my silence.
Wish you understood.
All I am is you.
I feel such a fool...

And fools are cheap these days.



Short Love Hurts poem by John Pen| Details | |

There is a fence in my bed

A 38th parallel separates our pillows
I try to touch her and she bellows
We are like strangers in our own bed
Help me break the Berlin wall in my bed

Short Love Hurts poem by nina mihandoust| Details | |

Do you believe in life after love

i always said "i don't wanna die without knowing about love",
but now i know,
love is killing me! 
now im asking my self"Do you believe in life after love?"

Short Love Hurts poem by Gabby Muir| Details | |

Our Love is a Crime Scene

If your words
(or lack thereof)
make me slit my wrists

Does that 
Make you a murderer?

You killed me long before
I dealt the final blow.

The jury is hung.

Hardened, 
           precious,
beautfiful.

I wish

Short Love Hurts poem by Ma. Fatima Ferrer| Details | |

Still Unknown

Twisted; you're a mystery
Unraveled; turned out a misery
Tangled; you're undefinable
Deciphered; near yet unreachable
Discovered; I love you
Ended; I watch you go

Short Love Hurts poem by kurtis scott aka curtis futch jr| Details | |

we had a passion ball
let go to rome  be alone
BABY MY
HEADCACHE GONE

To the Extent

We pardon to the extent that we love. (Francois de La Rochefoucauld)

I've forgiven you
No, you didn't ask for it
Can't breathe without you

Short Love Hurts poem by Just That Archaic Poet| Details | |

Absinthe Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

From a broken Heart, does one recover:
To know you will always love the other?
When discarded like trash, far too late, alas! 
You soon discover you long for that Lover?

Short Love Hurts poem by kurtis scott aka curtis futch jr| Details | |

LOVE HURTS BUT THATS LOVE

love make you sad
sometime feels bad
it also can drive you mad
it can make you glad
if its real thats the deal
it all come from high in the sky
above
LOVE HURTS BUT THATS LOVE

Bewafa e mohabbat

bewafa naam hai mohabbat me chod jane ka,
kyu intezar ab bhi itna hai uske aane ka.
wo gayi to meri duniya khilawat sa ho gaya
or khilawat kar diya is duniya me mere ashiyane ka

Short Love Hurts poem by Sybil Berry| Details | |

Fearfully Clumsy

I'd never been afraid of falling
As a rather clumsy person
I had fallen my whole life.
Then I fell in love
And falling became terrifying
but getting up became the hardest part.

Short Love Hurts poem by gregory ramos| Details | |

piece of my heart

a piece of my heart 
is what is left crumbled 
over on the other side
it sits waiting for a song
a dance as it holds up the wall
love will bring them together 
as long as i have hope

Short Love Hurts poem by Carma Reed| Details | |

Love Hurts




                   Love hurts like;
               porky pines needles, of 
                    A cactus bush... Ouch!!!
                                     That hurts.
     Stop poking me...

LOVE - LOVE - LOVE

Just a 4 letter word

A mountain jolted

A heart bolted

Find the magic mix

Like a candle wick

Look for love

Wings of a dove.

JESUS SAVES

Short Love Hurts poem by Laura Bussey| Details | |

Fire

"When I'm with him,
his love engulfs all of the anger and depression inside of me
and smothers it out like a flame, 
but when he's gone,
it adds fuel to the fire,
and it burns again."

-Laura Bussey

Short Love Hurts poem by hija de la luna| Details | |

Desire

I
saw
this cute
enchanting
beautiful flower;
wanted to press it to my heart,
But, I know if I would do that, a pure beauty it
would no longer be. So, I just gazed at it with admiration, then walked away.

Short Love Hurts poem by Ana Castro| Details | |

Waste

I can't write anymore poems 
about you, I've wasted too much 
ink on you. 

wasted too many lines 
on your disappointment
wasted too many words 
on your lies 

This is the last time 
my ink will waste on you.

Short Love Hurts poem by James Kelley| Details | |

Pyro

I sit between the flash of your stare
and the world that I used to live in.
Hoping that I'll rise from the ashes,
and brave the kindle of something
better built to withstand these flames.

Short Love Hurts poem by Franziska Keinath| Details | |

I don't want to lose you

I             hate you, you should disappear
Don't       ever want to see you again
Want       you to go away like a man
To           hear your name makes me suffer
Lose        my mind if you stay
You         should really go away

Short Love Hurts poem by Andy Craig| Details | |

Raindrops

Raindrops, washing away
teardrops from my cheek.

No one making out the
emotions that over leak.

The hurt from inside hidden
amidst a showering mist.

Someday, somebody will
see my pain. Catching my
tears amongst the rain.

Short Love Hurts poem by Angie Kvalevog| Details | |

Trusting You

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I made the mistake
Of trusting you
You broke my heart
Your made me cry
I wish that I
Hadn't believed all your lies
You just had to go
And make me feel dumb 
Now thanks to you
My heart feels numb

Short Love Hurts poem by A.E. Rivenbark| Details | |

Fly on the Wallpaper

Tonight I’m dressed up
in the finest wallpaper
As you waltz by
With your shiny 
Trophy of the week
Oh, you should be
A fly on my Wall
I rolled up in the edges
Of the Seventh Day Herald
News of your Armageddon
In my hands
Splat!

Short Love Hurts poem by Daconti Hall| Details | |

It's too warm in December

Winter Joy Reverence. Sunshine sprinkles the snow. You're here. It's safe now. My first love has brought summer flowers to winter snow. You're gone. Clouds circulate. The sun shines on melted snow, on wet grass. In Winter.

Short Love Hurts poem by William MacEachern| Details | |

I miss you

I miss you.....already...in such a bad way 

I know that I shouldn't 
Or dare even say 
  
But I do,,I do..Honestly I do 
I honestly find myself longing for you 
  
As if we've been we forever and a day 
I miss you I do...... 
I dearly do say 

Short Love Hurts poem by Demetrios Trifiatis| Details | |

FOOLISH HEART

FOOLISH HEART


Why foolish heart ,

So much to be consumed by the flames of your passion for her 
You yearn,

Instead of 

Running to safety, far away from the blaze of her detrimental   
Magic spell?

Monday



Short Love Hurts poem by Anon omous| Details | |

Schadenfreude

The sickness, it bubbles
I stare the ceiling out
The rage, red, sticky and hot
Fire charred my insides black
Your face falls with a thud

Thud. Thud. Thud.

My heart jolts into life
A smile creeps beneath my scowl,
A sickly sweet delight
