Love Hurts A LOT

Love. Hurts…A LOT.

I love you. You love me. 
But you don’t seem to get it. 
Or maybe I don’t get myself. 
I feel with you like I have no other,
it cannot be described in any sane terms. 
But is that love? 

Over the years, I’ve been hurt.
Broken hearts, broken smiles.
I guess love hurts. 

You think that I don’t love you,
in the way that you love me. 
I know this is true.
I don’t want it’s terms. 
I used to think that you were my friend. 
But no. 
I want to be with you.

Look at me.
 I’ve been depressed longer than I can ever remember.
More often as well. 
Ever since I left you.
Being with you, it makes me happy,
When nothing else does.
I can barely live without you. 

I draw on the pain its caused me,
my love, incinerated to smoke
I watch it drift away. 
Every day, more smoke.
Less me. 

Dull echoes throughout my heart, 
whispering of long gone love.


Love. It hurts.

    This is a very well written poem Zach! You've brought out the theme of love and pain very well. To love means to take a chance that the emotions exhibited can turn into pain. Nicely done!
